Garden Planning


25 per hour

Help you plan your Spring garden to get the most out of your space. Want to have mouthwatering tomatoes, crisp green beans, or fresh greens for salads? I can show you how to select a location, determine what you can/should grow in your space, sketch out your garden, help with variety selection, think about irrigation, and get you ready for Spring!

Training & Qualifications

I grew up on a 45 acre olive ranch on the Central Coast where we grew everything that we needed. For the last 5 years I've run my own 1/4 acre mini-farm in East Oakland complete with chickens. We grow corn, beans, squash, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, yucca, yacon, herbs, citrus, pears, apples, figs....

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Ashley received hour of Garden Planning from Carlos

Carlos was super helpful. To me, he is a soil genius and told me exactly what to do in each part of my yard so that I can grow healthy veggies instead... of the puny and spotted ones that I ended up with in previous years. He also sent me a list of what we talked about which is a great reference. I also felt totally comfortable inviting Carlos into my home/yard. He's very friendly and down to earth (imagine that). Highly recommended!show more
