TBN GARDENS & GROVES
The Gardens & Groves is a no-waste, no-kill, urban micro-farm. All produce from the Gardens and Groves is grown using organic, permaculture methods. We start our plants from seed, using organic seed (and whenever possible local seeds and/or heirloom seeds), we use traditional methods of soil enrichment and plant empowerment (composting and vermiposting), and we use only rainwater or well water.
We never use GM seeds, pesticides, or synthetic additives, or growth hormones. The Gardens & Groves is located in a certified National Wildlife "backyard habitat," and an officially recognized "Florida Friendly Yard" (as certified by the University of Florida Extension Service and Institute of Food and Agricultural Services).
