Mat, our Co-President, and his amazing little daughter. | There is nothing more beautiful than spending time with our children in green spaces, passing on knowledge of the land, how to grow fresh food, and to take care of this planet. Happy Fathers' Day to dads of all types, those here, in our memories, and those who wish to be. ...

We dream of living in a world where #organicproduce is grown in all types of urban settings, personal kitchen gardens, small farms serving small communities, window ledge herbs, rooftop veggie patches, even high-rise allotments (which are so exhilarating for us to build!). A food system by the people for the people. 💪 ...

Ok, serious #summertime craving 👉 Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches. When the wait is toooo long, pluck a few and fry them up, slather mayo onto toasted #sourdoughbread, add a slice of cheese and a few #pickledjalapenos, and eat over the kitchen sink. (Messy sandwich pro speaking here.) I'm lookin' at you, Sunday. ...

Nasturtiums are delicious (and spicy!) #edibleflowers that self-seed. Add the blossoms to salads, pickle their seeds, wrap sashimi in #nasturtiumleaves, but whatever you do, keep them in containers. These gorgeous plants are considered invasive in temperate climates like Southern California where they easily #overwinter. Their vines take over hillsides and can make it difficult for #californianativeplants to thrive. So we recommend them for your #containergarden and #raisedbedgarden only! 👈 ...

Interplanting marigolds with your summertime #pepperplants isn’t just a pretty idea. Bonuses include:⠀

Attracting beneficial insects to your #gardenbeds 🐞 ⠀
Bringing the bees to the yard for #pollination 🐝 ⠀
Potentially inhibiting the spread of #nematodes 👾 ⠀

They’re ALSO pretty, let’s not take that away from them. Plus, they easily re-seed for blooms all season long!

#Organicorchardcare is so much more than providing an occasional haircut. Ensuring your soil is nutrient rich, bark and branches are pest-free, and your #fruittrees are covered in fountains of #springblossoms is a science! Who's ready for lemonade, lemon leaf tea, lemon bars, lemon curd, lemon zest on everything, lemonade popsicles... 👋 ...

This gorgeous bed of heirloom corn and climbing beans was brought to you by Farmer Jazz at #CFG last summer. Succession planting both of these #warmweathercrops every two weeks will keep you in cobs for grilling, beans for sautées, and summer salads throughout what we believe will be #thebestsummerever! ...

Raise your hand if you've got tomatoes in the ground! 🍅 👋 If you're new to planting, these tips will encourage strong root systems and a focus on green growth prior to #fruitset: 1. Remove the bottom third of the plant's foliage and sink deep enough into the soil that the area is covered - tomato plants will grow roots from any area submerged! 2. Remove any existing buds at planting time. Voila! #somanytomatoes ...

Hey there, pretty! These gorgeous bursts of sunshine open up wide, first thing in the morning, begging for bees and butterflies to stop on by and spread pollen. We're planting #summersquash in our #ediblegardens any day now, and soon we'll be up to our eyelashes in squash to grill + sauté + roast + stuff + pickle + oh sorry, I've gotten carried away... 🌼 🐝 ...
