The Little River Market Garden is made up of 2 small vegetable, cut flower and herb gardens. Muriel Olivares is the farmer who created the gardens and runs them on a daily basis. Although the gardens are not certified yet, we use only organic and sustainable practices of agriculture. Our number one priority is to grow the most nutritious and beautiful produce. We believe that the health of our soil is directly related to the quality of our harvest so we take as much care of the soil as we do any of the crops. We focus on composting, cover-cropping and no-till to sustain the micro-organisms and organic matter in our field. The garden specializes in producing a variety of about 40 (some heirloom) vegetables, herbs, some fruits and flowers.
The Little River Market Garden is a fertile place for nourishment, gathering, education and good times outdoors for our neighbors, friends and family.
