Let's grow food + build healthy soils together!

 

How it works //

Due to the inability to meet in person at this time I am scheduling garden consults via video! During our time together I will listen to your goals + dreams for your growing space. I will observe your site and make recommendations based on your soil and space. I will walk you through basic recommendations for the layout of your garden space, how to prepare the soil using no-till methods, how to create a planting calendar that incorporates what you would like to grow, and other skills of your choosing. If there is a very specific skill or project you would like to consult on we can do that too. I can work one-on-one or with families and I encourage you to engage your children in the process of learning plants and growing food! After our time together I will follow up with resources and a written plan that covers what we discussed. If you would like to schedule additional time with me you are also welcome to do so after that!

The why //

It can sometimes be daunting and/or time consuming to scour books and the internet for resources about growing real food, caring for soil, or identifying plants, even though all the information is certainly out there! I spend a lot of time researching, reading, and meeting with my mentors ranging from farmers, ecologists, seed savers, and wild plant enthusiasts. If you are like me, I learn best when I am shown a skill and can practice it with others. This is the way I was first taught about plants as young child. Many people I meet want to grow food for themselves or their family in intentional ways that support the land and its species, but are overwhelmed and do not know where to start. I would love to help you get growing in your own space. Everyone can learn these skills and while gardening does take time, there are ways to set it up to suit your needs + lifestyle.

It all starts with your soil. 

 

About Me // 

I have 8 years of farming experience using sustainable + organic methods. I previously co-operated a CSA vegetable farm and have 5 years experience working as an agricultural educator. I love teaching these skills more than anything and I believe in making it accessible, affordable, and fun. I see growing food and working with the soil as a life-long learning experience and I learn more and more each season. Some day I hope to start my own seed cooperative with other farmers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For groups, organizations, schools //
If you are a group and would like to work with me for workshops or consulting I am available for that as well. Send me an email at mulleinhillfarm@gmail.com with the idea for your project and we can go from there.

 

 

My hope is that you will feel more confident in caring for you land + growing the plants and foods that you desire at home, on your farm, in your community garden, wherever it is that you grow.
