MILPA is a high diversity planting that improves the balance of your soil, attracting beneficial insects and creating natural fertility.
The microbes love it!
Purchasing produce grown from our MILPA Gardens helps to cover costs and grow more MILPA each year. Not to mention at a lower price than other produce!
(Pricing Coming Soon!)
50% of produce harvest from MILPA gardens are donated to local charities, food backs, and groups to fight hunger, promote health, and provide education. Even small areas can produce hundreds of pounds of food.
MILPA farming began more than 4,000 years ago with the Maya in Mesoamerica. It is a sophisticated technique to cultivate a variety of crops to support their entire communities. The form of MILPA gardening we use honors their wisdom and guidance.
These are amazing at area schools, businesses, churches or even in your own yard! They are a great teacher, and excellent producer. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets get growing!
