Steam Onward's youth group YRCP, with funding from the National Farm to School Network and support from the Ujaama Farming Group, and #Coop Gardens, is assisting home gardeners, faith-based centers, and community organizations start up vegetable and herb gardens.
Whether you have a large or small yard, or even a sunny window, it’s possible to produce a number of food-producing plants and herbs. The basic requirements are soil, water, a source of nutrition like compost or fertilizers, direct sunlight for about 6 – 8 hours each day.
First mark off a location you would like converted into a garden. Generally 15'x 30' or smaller. As the saying goes, "tend a small garden well." Larger spaces will require additional costs.
Following social distancing guidelines, our team will till up the demarcated space agreed upon and prep it for planting.
We are providing a tilling service for folks who desire to start a garden. Any additional gardening services, such as planting and garden maintenance are not part of the tilling fee. We do have seeds and seedlings. Click Link for FARMMACY SEEDS
PRICING: $150 for a 30 ft x 15 ft area = 450 sq ft or smaller. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and pricing for tilling areas larger than 450 sq ft. We will try to work with your budget. We're in this together.
