We're starting to notice a larger variety of greens + we now have a vendor with worm castings/vermicompost that is incredibly beneficial for your garden and plants. 

We've also been working hard all Winter preparing for the Main Season + all the fun events that we will be hosting this spring, summer, and fall! If you're wondering what we have planned so far, head on over to our website at for a complete listing!
