StartOrganic’s new @Home Garden Education Service is a great opportunity for parents and kids to connect with each other – as well reconnect with their food. The company’s goal is to improve the food system and create food independence, thereby changing the world for the better one small vegetable garden at a time.

StartOrganic was founded in 2011 by local Bay Area residents, Josh Levine and Troy Smothermon. The company also has developed school gardens, community gardens and corporate organic gardens for companies such as eBay, inc./PayPal. StartOrganic’s goal is to empower and educate people throughout the South Bay Area by helping them to grow their own organic produce and build sustainable local food systems. StartOrganic’s new @Home Garden Education Service helps families overcome the common obstacles keeping them from growing an organic garden of their own and gives them skills which will last a lifetime.
“Our new @Home Garden Education Service is an amazing opportunity for parents and kids to learn the best skills needed for organic gardening together,” said StartOrganic Co-Founder Josh Levine. “Using hands-on techniques and practical learning methods, our professional gardeners teach parents and families, at their own homes, how they can easily grow their own produce. No matter the size of your property, in just a few hours each month, we can teach your whole family how to grow healthier, sustainable, organic produce.”
The first step to creating an organic home garden with StartOrganic is to have their expert small plot farmer come to the home and provide advice on ideal garden location, soil preparation, water-saving irrigation methods, seasonal crop selection, plant spacing and layout. StartOrganic recognizes that the look and feel of a residential vegetable garden is important and they strive to create and install functional and visually pleasing gardens. The company will work with the homeowner to create an organic garden that works best with the aesthetics of each home, through the installation of victory gardens, sustainabed raised bed gardens, or redwood raised bed gardens. Once installed, a StartOrganic professional gardener will teach the family how to grow organic produce.
“Our new @Home Garden Education Service offers you unlimited email access and picture messaging directly with our professional gardeners,” said StartOrganic Co-Founder Troy Smothermon. “This allows you to share photos of your garden as it evolves and ask our gardeners any questions you might have about it. We realize learning a new skill, such as organic gardening, can be difficult. Therefore we make sure our clients always have the resources and support they need to be successful in producing the best vegetable garden possible.”
