Organic Gardening in St. Louis City

Dave’s Place

We’ve had the great fortune of meeting Dave, a fellow St. Louisan who has a large backyard that he’s allowing us to garden. We decided to build raised beds from reclaimed non-treated wood.  We’re filling the beds with river-bottom soil we had  delivered along with soil amendments like worm castings, leaf compost, sand, decomposed granite, and alfalfa meal.

We’ve just planted broccoli and kale seedlings and carrot seeds. More photos to come!
