The garden tour includes our organic permaculture garden, cut flower gardens, hoop house, compost system, and medicinal herb processing facilities. It walks visitors through ifarm’s operations, including the ways we start seeds, create compost, grow medicinal herbs and flowers in a permaculture setting, and the drying processes for our many fragrant herbs.
We will also cover the permaculture concepts behind our garden designs, which include hugelkultur, companion planting, supporting soil health, and sheet mulching. These strategies are extremely valuable to making gardens at any scale produce greater harvests with less work.
We are happy to tailor the tour to particular group interests, such as growing flowers, learning to compost, or understanding the broad principles of permaculture.
