Local New Canaan Residents Christine Segalas & Mark Gaulke have launched a new business in Fairfield County, “Homegrown Harvest”. The business is aimed at helping homeowners start and maintain their own vegetable gardens.
Co-owner Mark Gaulke said “We have talked with so many people who have told us they always wanted a garden, but never got around to it, didn't know how to get started and/or thought it was all too much work & hassle to deal with, or didn't have the space at their home or condo. We can help change all that. “
Homegrown Harvest offers the option of “raised bed gardens” or growing in smaller containers on your deck, porch or patio. These are not the large “row gardens” people typically think of when they consider backyard gardens. Gaulke adds “These are not your Grandmothers’ gardens, we maximize space and can produce the same amount of crops in only 20% of the space used by traditional gardening methods”
With so much interest today in organic foods, farmers markets, locally sourced foods etc., the time is right to offer people the opportunity to get started growing their own foods right in their own backyard.
“Our growing solutions that can work for just about anyone, even if you think you think you don’t have a “green thumb!”
