What, Why of an Organic CoOp? Organic gardening is a form of gardening that relies on natural methods such as crop rotation , green manure , compost , organic matter , biological pest control, soil solarization and cultivation without gas powered machines to maintain soil productivity and control pests, while excluding the use of all synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or any other unnatural means of agriculture.
We have several garden beds organically prepared for planting and others taking shape. We have additional land available to cultivate. We believe it is important to make use of all resources available not just the full sun gardens that veggies and herbs love. So in partially sunny spots we can house chickens, keep bees for honey, grow worm bins for plant food & compost, grow aloe & more. In the dark cool places we can grow mushrooms etc..
Want to help? We need:
