City Homestead Market Garden

MARKET GARDEN JOURNAL


The Market Garden section of City Homestead is the behind the scenes and business plan of gardening for profit.  Our open source approach gives details, from start to finish on set up, along with day to day operations plans.

The journal entries are about trial, error, lessons learned, concept development, planning, implementing the plans, and maintaining the business.

Public Site
