Don’t just mow grass, Urban Farm! Help the Pollinators (i.e. the Bee and Butterfly populations) and have fresh herbs, veggies, and fruits right from your front and/or back yard. Matt Kokenes, owner and founder of Microfarm, will help you set up your own urban oasis.
Microfarm Organic Gardens offers organic garden design, maintenance, and other gardening services to the greater Charlotte area. For anything to do with gardening in Charlotte – designing, composting, rainwater harvesting, greenhouses, chicken coops, furniture and more – this is your go-to! And they can help anyone with a garden, whether it’s going in your yard, on your rooftop, or on your balcony.
The other thing I love about this company is that they’re not limited on the size of their clients. They have specific services and tools for individuals looking to urban gardening of any size and type. Then there’s also a set of services for restaurants and businesses that want to get into the gardening game, whether it’s to help the environment or to have more control over the ingredients they serve.
You can contact Microfarm Organic Gardens through their website or via phone, if you want their help with your gardening efforts. Or you can head to Atherton Mill and Market in SouthEnd on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm to meet them in person and shop their wares.
And since the holidays are upon us, you can find gift ideas in a few of the Microfarm Organic Gardens blog posts over the years!
So if you’re interested in gardening in Charlotte or the greater metro area, give these guys a shout! They’re sure to lead you in the right direction!
