Dear Urban Farm Family.

We are a small Family run Kitchen Garden Design and Integrative Dynamic Eating Coaching Practice located in historic Pasadena, California. We love to help Busy Moms (and some really cool Busy Dads!) and First Time gardeners get their home-gardens set up fast so they can enjoy growing their own fresh and organic vegetables without having to spend a lot of time, money or energy to get it done. We also offer comprehensive Nutrition Coaching. Pretty Simple right? If you would like help getting started check out our Fall and Winter Packages for Your Garden!

Why Busy Moms and Dads and First Time Gardeners...

This is Nysha, Owner of Ardenwoods Edibles Organic Nursery. I understand busy Moms because I am a Busy Mom. In addition to being Chief, Cook and Bottle Washer of my Family and two Business(s). I can completely relate with the terror of starting a new garden and not being able to keep up with the task of taking care of it. I know what it means to have a zillion balls in the air--Work, Graduate School, Baby, Preschool and Family concerns and wishing for fresh produce to just appear in my garden. I started AWE because I becamed concerned with where my families food was coming from. Having been a automimmune sufferer (and survivor!) for 20 plus years with Crohn's Disease I dove in head first when I made the connection between Nutrition and Health. With 15 plus years (gulp!) experience as a landcape architect, I decided to shift to Culinary Nursery Owner...I became part of the "food movement" in my City after reading Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. It became a goal of mine to help other Families grow beautiful, nutritious backyard edible gardens. This passion has actually spurred me to begin a Graduate Program in Holistic Nutrition. I am so honored to run this business. Each time I get a set of "harvest" photos or a new client excited to learn about nutrition and gardening we become one step closer to a healthy planet! It is my dream to connect the two, gardening and nutrition and help all who ask to have a healthy garden in their very own backyard. (or frontyard!)

that is why you do not have to do it alone...
