Here is what some Groundswellers are saying...

  • Amazing!
    "I was watching the video on Geoff Lawton's channel and let me tell you I was amazed and so inspired, by what you did with the heating system of your glasshouse."
  • Bed Renters Love! (Stephen Lebovits)
    "AWESOME EXPERIENCE! I am so glad that Hannah signed us up. We planted seeds, did some watering and then BAM there was fresh food to eat. Beets, creatively-shaped carrots, mizuna and an onion or two. We had a blast and learned to grow our own food. We will definitely be back next year, whether they let us or not!"
  • Thank you for what you do! (Mara King)
    "I just want to say thank you for putting on the Edible Hanging Basket Workshop. Although I am an avid gardener, I learned so many new things – hydrophobia, microbes and to plant my tomatoes up to the first leaf. I can’t wait to see the basket in a few weeks and enjoy it all summer.” Thank you for what you do in this valley!
