Personal gardening service offered again in Valley

Starting a vegetable garden for the first time with limited experience can feel daunting...

Four Season Gardens is again offering a personal gardening service to the Comox Valley.

If the experience of eating luscious tomatoes and crisp sweet carrots grown from your own yard is a desire but you are a novice gardener, then this service is for you.

Starting a vegetable garden for the first time with limited experience can feel daunting. You may have a garden but the commitment of time and effort does not fit into your current lifestyle.

Four Season Gardens provides the expert guidance and confidence to establish a productive garden in the first season providing 20 weeks of harvest. Four Season offers experienced urban farmers to provide all labour and materials to establish a new garden or manage an established garden.

Why would growing your own vegetables be important?

Owner and principal urban farmer David Wicklund states, “Providing people with their own personal kitchen garden full of delicious vegetables addresses three key points — providing nutritious organically grown vegetables at home, learning the fundamental skills of growing food and reducing yard maintenance with an edible landscape. This is ideal for those who can’t or don’t want to maintain their own garden.

“Multiple families can also share a subscription to lower their overall costs. The kitchen garden lends itself to developing a more comprehensive edible landscape design, including tree fruits and berries.”

Four Seasons provides seeds, transplants, top dressing compost, drip irrigation, weekly maintenance and garden design/planning by offering several reasonably priced packages.

The most comprehensive package is the Startup Package, which provides a complete service of preparing the garden and 20 weeks of harvest. A Garden Preparation package includes digging and preparing the soil plus all necessary infrastructure, leaving all the planting and growing to the client.

A New Client Package is for those with existing gardens. There is a Returning Client subscription.

David suggests the Startup option is ideal for those who may not have experience and want some assistance in getting the garden process up and running. David brings his extensive experience from commercial organic farming, gardening and landscape design to each garden he grows.

As one client described her experience, “David made it so easy. It was like magic — with very little effort on our part, out flowed fresh vegetables. There’s a real satisfaction in eating from our own garden — and I love to see my kid “sneaking” into the garden with his friends to snack!”

Four Season Gardens starts the process by offering a free consultation to assess your the site and soil, then develops a garden plan that meets each clients specific desires. David adds, “Gardening is an engaging and creative art focused around soil building which lays the foundation for a lush, beautiful and successful gardening experience. This has been my contribution to each garden I have had the privilege of growing.”
