I have always had a passion for gardening and growing interesting and unique edible plants. I have spent many years gardening and educating myself on planting and growing techniques. I have shared my expertise with the local chapter of Master Gardeners, have presented my work at the NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) conferences and contribute regularly to online communities like ourfigs.com.

Our Mission

To provide customers with high-quality, unique edible plants and the knowledge to grow them successfully.

Our Promise

If it's for sale in the nursery, we have successfully grown it ourselves first. Honesty is very important to us and is an essential ingredient in helping our customers to successfully grow their own delicious, organic edibles.
