#57 – Farmer D Organics – The Time is Now to Plant Your Gardens, Atlanta! Shop a Local Company – Atlanta and Norcross, Georgia
I first found Farmer D Organics while shopping at Pike Nurseries last year with my hubby. We were starting our first vegetable garden and our favorite Pike Nurseries employee recommended we use Farmer D Organics compost mix.
Then we found a Farmer D Organics store in Norcross (in an environmentally-friendly car wash) and discovered that they are a local Atlanta company – how very cool! Named “Best Resource for Urban Farmers” in the Atlanta Magazine‘s Best of Atlanta, why not check out this local company and see if you can become an urban farmer, too?
If you enjoy gardening – or are thinking about starting a garden this year (it is THAT time of year!), I think you should pay Farmer D Organics a visit! They have everything you need to start your garden or improve your current one: from their Biodynamic Blend Compost (that is made using the organic spoils from Whole Foods Market as a key ingredient) and seedlings for your vegetable garden to selling worms by the pound for your composting and egg-laying chicks! There is something for every level of gardener and experienced gardeners and farmers on hand to give you their sage advice.
Another very cool product they carry is raised bed gardens, which can help you make big use of a small space – if you only have limited gardening space, like a small backyard, these make it easy to keep your garden contained and manageable and are available in almost any size specification.
The Farmer D Organics website is a much better resource than I can ever be – from the history and mission of Farmer D Organics and complete information on all their products, to information on seasonal seed varieties and video tips on gardening. There is so much information there, that I highly recommend you visit the website…and then go and visit Farmer D Organics in person! Plan your garden and get started on this beautiful weekend! Tell them 365Atlanta sent you!
