Garden Plans > 2020: Grow Good Things Sample Plan 1

About this Garden Plan

Here is a sample of what s Grow Good Things garden design looks like. We have tried to squeeze in nearly every vegetable that grows well in our (Zone 2-4) region, and made a permaculture-style guild planting around the fruit trees and bushes at back. In the fruit tree area, we would also use a cover crop such as clover across the entire area to keep out the grass and weeds, as well as to provide benefits such as green manure, mulch-type protection, and pollinator habitat.
