What Can You Grow in 512 Square Feet?

9 comments

 

The answer is:  a lot! 

The Blust Avenue Teaching Garden only had 512 square feet planted this past season.  That included seven 4 x 16 ft raised beds and two 4 x 8 raised beds. 

In that square footage, the teaching garden grew enough produce to sell at the weekly North End Farmers' Market and to share with staff, volunteers, and neighbors. 

Two of the larger beds were planted by area schoolchildren and included a variety of flowers, herbs, and vegetables.  The additional beds included strawberries, tomatoes, eggplant, collards, cabbages, lettuce, kale, carrots, radishes, peppers, and squash. 

Imagine what you can grow - for yourself, your family, or for market.  Perhaps you don't have that much space, but on even a portion of that amount, you can produce quite a bit with seasonal rotation.

Just selling a little produce at market can bring in enough extra money to make a difference in your household.  You can even supplement your produce sales with baked goods, plants, or crafts - anything homemade or home grown.  And remember, there is no fee to vend at the North End Farmers' Market!

If you would like to learn about growing for market, or just for your family - even if you have no garden experience - well, that's what the Blust Avenue Teaching Garden is here for!  It's never too early to start planning for next season, choosing vegetable varieties and planting locations, preparing beds, and dreaming those big dreams.

Feel free to give us a call at 419-525-3101 and ask for me - Candace Harrell, Teaching Garden Coordinator.  Or email me at Candace@necic-ohio.org.

Let's get growing!
