It’s a great time to get all those that love to garden together to get ready to have a garden Co-op. This weekend I will be tilling up our garden and planting it. It’s just a relaxing thing that we do every year and love it. We have a garden that takes up our whole back yard. However there are many that do not have as much space to garden in. So it’s a great time to plan a garden Co-op with friends and family so that you can have your fresh produce, herbs and other good foods to can or freeze.
When you plan your garden co-op keep in mind how much gardening space everyone has. Even if you live in an apartment you can still take part in the garden Co-op and grow Herbs in your Window light to take part in the co-op or use the 4-Tier Mini Greenhouse to grow your herbs in and you can grow enough for yourself and to give away for the co-op as well. So even if you have limited space you can still take part as herbs will also make a great addition to the Co-op when you dry them and everyone can use them for their meals and not have to purchases spices and herbs that can be costly. Have those with smaller areas hand the herbs that the Co-op would like to have, Those with larger areas to plant in Select 3 produce per person or more for each to grow a larger section of for the Co-op. Then as your produce comes in be sure to send it to each other so that everyone is getting a share of the produce. You can use for Canning, Freezing, or just for your summer meals. You will want to use large yielding produce for your C0-op Such as Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers, Carrots, Potatoes, and many others that will yield a high amount for everyone.
Co-op Ideas for Smaller Areas
Tomatoes that you can hang in planters from your home, inside it or from a Balcony

There are many other ways to grow produce for the Co-op as well. So you don’t have to stay out of the Co-op due to small planting areas as you will have plenty to offer the Co-op! So start planning this weekend and get your Co-op started. It’s going to be a great planting season.
