Square Foot Gardening
Square foot gardening was coined by Mel Barthemew in his famous book the “All New Square Foot Gardening” with over 2 million sold as well as doing gardening shows on PBS and the Discovery Channel. In fact, his gardening show on PBS was the longest running gardening show ever in PBS history!
Mel went on to create a Foundation that focuses on world hunger by teaching square foot gardening, or square meter gardening, in other countries. Mel set up training centers in Homestead, Florida as well as Eden, Utah to teach those worldwide humanitarian organizations to include square meter gardening in their programs.
To understand square foot gardening think of a Soduko game…using only a 4’ by 4’, 6” high box filled with a special soil blend, the garden is divided into 16 square feet. Within each square foot is where you plant your vegetables. The number of vegetables you are able to plant in each square foot varies on the size of the plant.
Imagine a garden at every hospital, institution, childcare center, retirement home.
Just imagine having a unique garden just for your organization where staff, clients and families could unwind, relax and regroup. A year round Horticultural Therapy program could change the culture of your work place.
The goal is simple to engage with nature, people of all levels and abilities use the garden to improve physical, emotional and spiritual health.
