What You'll Get
Vegetables are like fingernails—though you can always buy someone else's, it's often healthier to grow your own. Take control of your veggie destiny with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-hour backyard-garden consultation from The Backyard Farm (a $60 value). This Groupon is valid in Gwinnett, Fulton, DeKalb, Rockdale, and Henry counties.
The Backyard Farm transforms urban and suburban abodes into productive mini farms, allowing homeowners to grow their own sustainable, organic produce. Gardens can range from a dirt-filled Grow Bag of potatoes on an apartment deck to several raised beds of salad greens in a sunny suburban backyard. During a one-hour consultation, gardening experts can help green green-thumbs pick out plants and containers or teach them how to mix an earthy cocktail of topsoil, organic compost, and 100-proof Miracle-Gro (or a comparable product). After planting, gardeners can reap the fruits and vegetables of their labors as flower boxes burst with drool-worthy salad and stir-fry ingredients.
The expertise of The Backyard Farm proprietor Donna Byers can also bolster already established gardens with organic insect control or composting tips. Plus, she can help craft coops for a brood of backyard chickens, miniature livestock, or sentient rutabagas.
