Gro Organic Review



I have always thought square foot gardening is the ideal way to plant a garden especially in suburban neighborhoods for various reasons....I was recently given a subscription to Gro-Organic,and have enjoyed planning our spring garden and exploring the website. At first, it took a few minutes to find out  how to use the garden planner as I am not very computer literate but did manage, after a few tries, to come up with a usable plan...I put in our zip code which helped greatly in determining what time to plant the different vegetables we selected...in fact, gro organic sends monthly emails and reminds you when to plant which is great! As well as they have a  newsletter and Facebook page. I couldn't figure out how to post the plan I drew but here is a video about the program..



They've have been featured on many TV shows and  their celebrity clients enjoy groOrganic Gardens like the Kardashians, Tori Spelling, Maria Menounos, Billy Bush and others. But those of us who are not celebrities can benefit too I think square ft. gardening is perfect for those of us who wish to grow food for our families in an easy way..without all the back breaking toil a large ground garden can have. This is great for city and apartment dwellers also as they have barrel and planters for patios, balconies, etc.
The gro-organic company has packages you can purchase which at first, I thought were on the high end, but after looking into it..found the cost reasonable..as it includes not only delivery and set up of the sq. ft. planters, but all the soil, seeds, plants and some plans have a year maintenance program included.

Other products they offer are Chicken Coops, beehives, composters, rainwater harvesting and  more so please check out the site.....
This model is called the Urban Coop
Last but not least, I found one page of building plans  for the handyman and the crafter. My favorite was this darling garden planter...
At least, I think its really sweet......I  imagine strawberries spilling down the sides......
So, in conclusion..I give Gro-Organic a thumbs up!
P.S. they have franchise opportunities  and with so many out of work..this might be a good opportunity for someone..the start up costs are much lower than most...
