Growing Practices

Our Farming Philosophy

Since its existence in 2008, the farm has always worked towards farming in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner.

We are committed to the health of the land, the water, the biology within the farm, the consumer's health - our wonderful customers, and the health and well-being of our employees. 

What we do at Green Gardens:

• Absolutely no use of synthetic chemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizers on our crops.

• Careful use of even Organically approved soil amendments and sprays

• Care for our soil, water and air quality with crop rotations, cover crops, protective buffer strips and ecologically sustainable farming practices

• No use of chemically treated or Genetically Modified seeds. The majority of the farm's purchased seed is now OG. Sometimes we purchase conventional seed for varieties that are unavailable on a commercial level OG.

• Adherence to sanitary post-harvest practices including proper transport, storage and the use of only potable water for the washing of produce.

• A commitment to pass on the land and surrounding environment in an even better condition than it was passed on to us.

We aim to be transparent and are open to any questions regarding how we farm. If you are more interested in a specific component of how we farm, please e-mail trent@greengardensfarm.com
