The design is complete, and the ground is ready. Let's get planting! This design will feature the natural shape of a spiral, and its many benefits. For example, we'll discuss why mimicking natural patterns often provides more efficient, abundant and aesthetic gardens. Find out how to add a simple, unique and prosperous showpiece to your landscape.

Backyard to Table Workshop Series

In collaboration with Zachary's BBQ of Norristown, Feed the Burbs will be hosting a series workshops related to kitchen herb gardens. FTB will be bringing you along their process while they design and install a herb garden right at Zachary's doorstep.

$20 suggested donation (includes workshop and lunch).  Donations for this workshop will go directly to funding the cost of the plantings.   A link to the PayPal donation form will be available after registering below.  Donations of any amount will also be accepted during the day of the class.

We'd also love to have any seeds or plugs you'd like to donate to the garden. Bring them with you and we'll find them a spot.
