AN EDIBLE PLANT NURSERY & EDUCATION CENTER

We are a family run farm-nursery specializing in edible landscape and garden plants. We firmly believe in practicing organic principles and sustainable agriculture. We are also the home of Fruit Cove Cactus & Foliage. Our farm uses composting, vermiculture, rainwater reclamation, aquiponics, chicken production for a manure source and mushroom production from waste wood reclamation as part of our sustainable practices. We also raise tilapia in a growing-power style aquaculture system. Come out on Fridays and Saturdays and pick up some plants to "Eat Your Yard".

EMPOWERING LOCALS TO EAT LOCAL ONE YARD AT A TIME

We are passionate about enabling people to grow their own food using organic practices. There is an Urban Agricultural Revolution going on and we are here to help you get involved! We believe it is possible to incorporate attractive food producing perennials, trees and bushes into your landscape. A yard should be more than a postage stamp sterile environment. It should be a place that feeds mind, body and spirit, a place to share nature with children, family and neighbors.

ORGANIC VEGGIE STARTS & HERBS

We are passionate about supplying people with regionally appropriate fruit and berry
bushes, fruit trees, seasonal vegetable starts, selected herbs and perennial tea and Salad
gardens. All our veggie starts and herbs are QCS certified organic!

"A yard should be more than a postage stamp sterile environment.
It should be a place that feeds mind, body & spirit."
