This is our 5th season in production. The Local Patch is a diversified market garden focused on growing the highest quality produce using sustainable, organic practices. Healthy, strong, productive plants come from management practices that place an emphasis on soil health. We feed the soil a balance of organic nutrients and compost and in turn, the the soil feeds the crops. With this approach we are not focused on spraying to treat symptoms, nor are we using chemicals to fight weeds. With minimal tillage, we preserve the soil tilth and with ground cover and lots of hands on weeding we help our crops along.
In addition to growing for our CSA, we attend the Aquidneck Growers' Market twice a week.
We welcome volunteers and work shares any time throughout the season! Please reach out with any questions.
