“My garden is gorgeous to look at! I love choosing from our favorite vegetables and herbs an hour before I’m ready to cook dinner.”– Judy, SW Portland
Backyard vegetable gardening is where we started, and was the core of our Portland, Oregon based business for our first five years. Since then, though, we've decided to focus on online sales of downloadable files to help a broader group of gardeners create raised bed gardens.
Because of this shift in focus, we now partner with Portland-based Independence Gardens to help area residents install and maintain their gardens, and to learn how to garden organically. Just as Verdura once did, Independence Gardens provides a range of home gardening services in the Portland metro area, including:
Site assessment – meeting with you onsite to help you locate your garden in the best place on your property.
Installing your garden – Independence Gardens is exclusively licensed to install Verdura-style raised bed gardens in Oregon. And they have their own designs as well, meaning more choices for you!
Planning your garden – Independence Gardens can develop a custom planting plan – based on your family’s unique eating habits – which will provide you dates for planting, spacing, harvesting and more. This will maximize the productivity of your garden and take the guesswork out of how much to plant, when and where.
Coaching, maintenance and classes – A range of options are available to help you with planting and maintaining your garden. You can choose one-on-one coaching if you'd like to learn how to be a more successful gardener. Or, for clients who are either not interested or are too busy to maintain their gardens themselves, full service maintenance is available. And Independence Gardens offers a variety of classes to help gardeners as well.
