What we grow here: vegetables, herbs, sunflowers, perennial flowers, currants
We have a very short growing season, and to top it off, a 7" annual precipitation in our high mountain valley desert.
Our outdoor gardens are laid out on a drip irrigation system. We practice crop rotation, companion planting, organic additives, and good bugs eating bad bugs (aka biological controls).
We encourage others to garden communally by supplying free starts for other community gardens. We host an open house each spring and sell additional seedling starts to raise funds for our gardening efforts.
