Garden Consultations

Let us help you plan your dream vegetable garden by selecting one of our garden consultation packages! By doing so, you are sponsoring a Back-Farms garden for a local senior citizen at their home while receiving expert advice about your own garden.
“For the second year in a row, GULB has helped me get my garden in the ground and keep it going with monthly check-ins. I'm happy to report that the harvest was good -- I had a bounty of tomatoes, tomatillos, squash, zucchini, pumpkins, giant sunflowers, and more. My favorite part was the flowers, planted to attract pollinators. I highly recommend zinnias, marigolds, and calendula. I know with GULB's help, my odds of success will be increased tenfold.”

Within the varying packages listed below, we help determine the location and layout of your vegetable garden, provide seeds and starts, draft a planting and harvesting guide, and help troubleshoot issues as they arise during the season. 

Our garden plans include annual vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs, which are either direct-seeded or transplanted. We cannot advise on perennial ornamental plants, shrubs, vines, or trees. If you are interested in receiving care for your fruit trees, check out our Fruit Tree Services.

 

At this time, we can only complete garden consultations in Salt Lake County.


If you have any questions about Garden Consultations, email Jessica at backfarms@gulb.org or call our office at (801) 318-1745.
