Steve Masley Consulting and Design
5 Recensioni
I am an organic gardening consultant and edible landscape designer working in the San Francisco Bay Area. My primary focus is on raised bed organic vegetable gardens and edible landscaping, but I also do cottage gardens, cutting gardens, and drought-tolerant California native and Mediterranean landscapes. I do troubleshooting and maintenance as well as installations.

I taught the Local Sustainable Agriculture Field Practicum at Stanford University in 2007 and 2008, and was instrumental in revitalizing the Stanford Community Farm. In 2012, my garden was featured on the Common Ground Edible Landscaping Tour.

Ha commentato: Bountiful harvest!!!! How did you get the plant to thrive like that? I make my own organic potting mix using really good compost and fresh worm castings, including a few live worms for nutrient cycling. Annie Thornton's idea book features some of my work: http://ww...
