Backyard Food Shelf

We conduct workshops that teach people how to build hoop beds and extend the growing season and grow nutritious food in small spaces, thus creating a backyard foods shelf. In the process, we give away fresh vegetables grown at our facility for donations in the form of time and/or contributions. Fresh vegetables and plants are available on site on an honor basis during the growing season.
