I'm an
Grand Rising! My name is Alyssa and I'm a passionate organic gardener based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I specialize in a variety of services such as garden consultations, plant and herb selection specific to your needs, soil health, sourcing quality materials, planting and routine care. SERVICES: - Consultations - layout options, plant spacing, companion plants, when to start seedlings or direct seed, etc. - Seed/Seedling Selection - help you to choose popular or unique varieties that will thrive in our growing zone that are specific to your family wants and needs to ensure there is no waste. - Material Sourcing - available to purchase seeds, seedlings, soil, or any materials needed for your space. - Soil Health - creating an environment of high quality, healthy soil for optimal growth & basic compost education. - Installation - planting, spacing, garden bed set up, and bed preparation. - Maintenance - weeding, trellising, mulching, watering, and fertilization. - Garden Nanny - garden care & maintenance while you're out of town. & more. If your needs are not listed above please feel free to message. Team members available for larger scale jobs. ABOUT ME: My experience spans both small and larger scale gardens. I have been gardening for as long as I can remember with my grandparents growing up in our backyards and recently have taken Earth Tending on full time working at one of Winnipegs largest and most reputable organic vegetable farms gaining immense experience with reference to market gardens, kitchen gardens, herb gardens, and CSA (community supported agriculture) programs. PURPOSE: My passion stems from the belief that everyone should have access to healthy and nourishing food. I believe a kitchen garden is the perfect place to start especially with the recent rise of food costs, dangerous chemicals used within large organizations, and recent uncertainty of our supply chains. My services can benefit families by not only providing garden care and maintenance but also through education around different plants and herbs so you look forward to having them in your space. My goal is to help you take care of your garden as well as help you gain confidence in your own skills and attain a level gardening autonomy so you can learn to love the process as much as I do. The mental, physical, and spiritual benefits of having a connection to nature have been scientifically proven for decades now. There has been no better time to build your connection to nature by cultivating your own little slice of heaven featuring all your favourite veggies, fruit, and medicinal herbs, growing in the comfort of your own yard. I am excited to help my clients create beautiful and sustainable organic gardens that are specific to their personal wants and needs through creating their ideal vegetable, fruit, herb, or flower gardens. If you're looking for an experienced gardener to help you take your garden to the next level, look no further. I charge $22.00 hourly, although prices may vary based on services. Please feel free to message me about any questions regarding your garden needs, my services, or just to chat about the true gift that nature is. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMERS!
