Garden Site Assessment and Preparation

West Virginia has a long history of planting backyard gardens and we lead the nation in small family farms. For many years these gardens were planted out of necessity and not as a hobby but as our food supply became more stable and people left the farms and moved to suburbia. This change has led many people to stop gardening all together and now people want to reconnect with our gardening roots.

The first step in gardening is determining where you will place the garden and the size of area required for your needs.
