Want a sustainable food garden? NanoFarms guild can supply

 

Interested in having a garden to grow your own vegetables, even though backyard space is limited and the soil depleted? The NanoFarms guild offers a sustainable garden-installation service that customizes the garden according to space restrictions and the customer's preferences in produce.

The garden installation includes training in biointensive gardening methods, which maximizes space, and maintenance. Customers can also sign up to have their garden maintained by a NanoFarms member.

The designated parcel's existing soil is enriched with organic soil supplements. Seeds for the garden are started in the St. Patrick's farm greenhouse, using organic soil and practices.

NanoFarms is also launching a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, called NanoFarms Box. Subscribers can pick up produce weekly at one of several locations, or can have it delivered.

Produce from the Menlo Park farm is also available for sale at a number of local Catholic churches, including in Menlo Park. The Sunday church markets are held after Mass on a rotating basis — once a month at each church.

We can't do it without you.
