Garden Planning

25


25 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will meet or skype with you to figure out exactly what it is you're looking for. We will discuss the size garden you are looking for, your local climate and conditions, your access to steady sunlight, the amount of time and work you are looking to invest, the types of vegetables you and your family normally use, and any accessibility requirements that you may have. Then I will plan your garden and its successions, write up a schedule with complete directions, and email it to you. If you prefer to do the design yourself, I can simply offer advice, write up a schedule and instructions, or design a successional plan around your snapshot design. Don't feel discouraged if you have no yard or a yard that doesn't have a suitable location for a garden. Container gardening and plots at your local community garden may be an option.

Guitar lessons
I have played around on my own, but I'm looking for some basic instruction so that I avoid developing bad habits that will be difficult to fix later.

About Alex Miller

I'm an aspiring ecologist, gardener, and a bit of a vagabond. I've been WWOOFing around Oregon for most of 2016, but I'm settled on Eugene for a little while. I love working with plants and animals..., picking up new skills, and just being helpful in general. Graduated in 2011 from Rutgers University in New Jersey with a BS in Ecology and Natural Resources. Got a job in environmental regulatory compliance, saw the futility of that after 2 years, and moved to Oregon to find something more productive and meaningful. I have been settling on sustainable agriculture, with a tilt toward social justice. I have stumbled, through my network, into the opportunity to get a non-profit organization started, which I started working in earnest to put together a few months ago.show more
