Feed yourself, not your lawn.
Did you know that in 1943 nearly half of all fruits and vegetables consumed in the US were from backyard garden? Today, immersed in convenience culture, many of us find the concept inconvenient to imagine.
To many, growing your own food has become this mysterious and falsely laborious undertaking. In reality, our comfortable Southern California microclimate provides us with almost everything we need for cultivating delicious, organic fruits and vegetables year-round. Were you aware that you can grow guavas, shitake mushrooms, medicinal herbs, goji berries, passion fruit, bananas and much more at a fraction of the cost of what it takes to maintain a water loving lawn…?
We take countless trips to the supermarket only to find a selection of foreign, pesticide-laden, and over-packaged produce covered in annoying little stickers. Wouldn’t it be great to just walk steps and have a perfect selection of delicious edibles for our picking? Is there any better way to improve our heath and our culinary skills than reintroducing fresh, organic, nutrient-rich fruits, herbs and veggies from our own garden?
Grandma was on to something…
Growing your own food is one of life’s simplest rewards. You don’t need much space; you just need the right set-up. Aside from creating custom gardens, we specialize in providing expert knowledge that will help you discover your inner suburban farmer. With the right tools and practices, you will discover that it’s easier and more fun than you thought. Five to ten minutes here and there can work a miracle. Beyond that, Mother Nature takes care of herself..

No matter how u slice it, we live in a world where…

- 2.5 million gallons of pesticides are used on our food every year.

- Watering the average lawn takes 750 million gallons of water annually.

- Our grocery store produce travels an average of 1,500 miles to reach our shelves.

- Typical American diets feature 60-70 toxic chemicals daily.

- Approx. 70 percent of the world’s potable water is used in large-scale agriculture
