Go Go Green Garden

A Seattle Urban Farming Business Specializing in Prolific & Organic Edible Gardens for Homes and Businesses

GO GO GREEN GARDEN was started by me, a girl-on-the-go in Seattle who loves to garden. Without a backyard of my own I was approached by a busy city couple asking me to keep an organic vegetable garden. That was three years ago.

Now, with several gardens in full bloom, and a trunk-full of seeds, shovels and trellis, I'm the go go green gardener.

I can help you grow beautiful and tasty vegetables to have fresh all season (all year even!) long.  You'd be surprised with how little space you need. Take local food to a whole new level when it's grown in your own backyard.  With rare and flavorful herbs, heirloom beans and fruity tomatoes in your garden, you can feed your belly, just by walking out your back door.

With a focus on regional and native foods, crop rotation to replenish all the good nutrients in your soil and healthy eco-friendly eating, GO GO GREEN GARDEN is one of life's little luxuries. 

"Once a vegetable is harvested it begins to change, and that change is almost always for the worse. (Exceptions include plant parts designed to hibernate, for example onions and potatoes.) Plant cells are hardier than animal cells, and may survive for weeks or even months. But cut off from their source of renovating nutrients, they consume themselves and accumulate waste products, and their flavor and texture suffer."

McGee, Harold, On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen

Herbs & Medicinals

Herbs & Medicinals

There's more to edibles than cukes and peas.  I have been storing up and stashing a wide variety of herbs and medicinals for some years now.   Brewing teas, using dried florals for help with sleeping or calming a babies cough can be done by growing medicinals in your backyard. READ MORE »

Spring

Spring is such an exciting time for gardeners everywhere. Seeds go in the ground, buds start opening on trees. Scallions, carrots, radishes, chards, sweet peas and a gaggle of flowers can be planted. We can also put in broccoli, beets and cabbages, although it's still a bit cold, so they'll need a cloche. (which is basically a small green house) Rhubarb comes up in Spring, too - great not only in pies, but as a pickle and in savory jams.
