Composting

Composting material can be referred to as "Black gold" and can be used as a natural fertilizer for your garden. This texture is formed of decomposed/ recycled food/vegetable waste and other natural scraps such as leaves and grass that can be found in your backyard. Creating your own Composting pile has many benefits such as reducing waste in landfills, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, and reducing water usage.

Winter Sowing

The concept of Winter Sowing is starting seeds outdoors in the winter. We would do this by creating mini greenhouses using clear containers such as milk jugs; soda liter bottles, or any type of containers with lids. These containers are to be left outside all winter long and allowing these seeds to be with the elements, such as rain and snow. By early Spring, your seeds will germinate and you should have seedlings that can be planted in your garden! This process does not require much work, since you are leaving out your containers all winter. This method creates sturdier seedlings that are ready to go by the spring time.

Raised bed/ Container Gardening

When Springtime arrives and all of your plants are ready to be planted, there are a variety of ways and materials you are able to use to achieve your very own garden. Raised beds are grown on the ground and boarders are used to support these. Container Gardens are transportable and good for both Flowers and Vegetables.
