Our dream started many years ago as we sought for more efficient and effective vegetable production on a small quarter-acre lot in our quiet Houlton neighborhood. We quickly realized that we were able to produce enough vegetables for us, and most of our non-farming family, utilizing just over 200 square feet of garden. Since growing your own vegetables is not only to help reduce one’s grocery bill (which is has, significantly, the use of natural fertilizers and “old timey” methods have given us months of food that we don’t need to get from the grocery store.
But here’s the thing: we’re not just limited to the “usual” veggies that people typically grow around here. We have a steady crop of more “exotic” veggies like habeñaros, egg plants and other fun stuff.
As we are able to expand our gardens, we will offer up our delicious home-grown and healthy veggies at the Farmer’s Market. It is our hope that we will have enough to share with all of you, and a surplus that we can donate to food banks.
This is the heart of “sustainable”. By gardening responsibly and intelligently, we can make use of every square inch of our tilled soil for veggie production, without using chemicals or other substances that can be harmful to our health and well-being.
