It’s an exciting time for the business as we’re slowly expanding and beginning to have a more significant impact around Birmingham. For this post I want to just focus on the two biggest projects we’ve got going on right now.
- Our main client, Stewart Perry, is getting rid of their old garden space and moving the garden to a new spot on campus. Fortunately for us they asked us to work with them on the design process and we’ve been able to give some input. This is really cool to me because it’s really a sign of endorsement from Stewart Perry. The total cost of this garden has got to be at least $10,000+ and it’s cool that they trust us enough to let us design garden for them, especially since they’re so keen on having things look good. Anyway, when SP decides to do something they do it quickly. They’ve already started the new area and I’ll keep people updated with how it goes but for now here’s some pics.
- We’ve been able to put in a lot of work on our own land which is rewarding but also very grueling. We didn’t have to but we re-dug a lot of our beds; we’ve basically broken the farm down into 7 sections and are trying to get a new section planted each week. This involves going through and weeding the beds and pathways, working in various fertilizers, and finally planting it. We’ve done mainly arugula so far and are going to try our luck selling to local restaurants. I feel confident in our ability to put out a quality product but it’s going to be a new experience stepping up our growing game to a more professional level. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll update as we get more stuff going but here’s a few pictures.
