Organic Gardening 101/Q&A

15


15 per visit - Virtual OK

Do you want to start a garden? Should you start from seed or plants? Raised beds, containers, right in the ground? What USDA Zone are you in, and why is that important? Do you need too amend your soil, and with what?

I am here to help! I was once a plant killer, but have developed a bright green thumb. I will help you determine your climate zone , plan your first garden, suggest plants, share gardening resources I have personally found helpful, and more.

Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes! Get your hands in the soil a nd give yourself a dirt manicure! I will (virtually) help.

I will need to know your city and state, budget, space available for plants, and what you like yo eat-- at least. I am friendly, and we can chat online or over the phone, whichever is easier.

Training & Qualifications


I am an Urban Homesteading Permaculturust, who has converted my entire Zone 4B yarn into garden beds. I grow native perennials and herbs in the front, veggies in the back. I have learned many tips in my 20 years of growing things, and I am happy to share with you!

Availability & Preferences


Flexible

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

About Katie Higgins

My name is Katie. I like cats, civil discourse, coffee, flowers, starting crochet projects, naps, piles of old books, and being an RN and a homeschooling mother of 3, living in Syracuse. My skills ra...nge from medical care (wound care, complex dressing changes, PICCs and G-tubes, medication teaching) to cooking to gardening (organic veggies, native perennials) to crochet (I can show you, or make it for you!) to childcare. ... Ask me, I can probably do it! I have been 25 for almost 12 years, and have been married to Himself for a more than decade and a half, which was the very smartest decision I made as a young adult. We have three offspring, Brainy, Patience, and Goldilocks, some of whom are homeschooled. We have 1.7 cats per person, a lot of small critters in fish tanks, and we are waiting for the right dog. Our household is uprooting currently, which is both terrifying and exciting. show more
