Do your part: Earth Day 2013

At Winterberry Gardens, we treat everyday like Earth Day. We are constantly looking for more efficient ways to improve our practices and conserve our resources.

 we have been upgrading our greenhouse growing systems. We're building a new Ebb n' Flow flood benching system that will conserve a significant amount of water and fertilizer while growing healthier plants at the same time.
This season, we built a new Ebb n’ Flow flood benching system that will conserve a significant amount of water and fertilizer while growing healthier plants at the same time.

Although we operate on a much larger scale, there are still dozens of ways for you to do your part and “Go-Green” at home.

Here are five great suggestions:

1) Collect rainwater to water plants
