Herb En Routes- run by Paige and Danielle- has been growing sustainable and local produce on .25 acres on a previously vacant lot at 4113 Voltaire – across from the pet hospital.
They were selling organically grown produce to local restaurants, such as Tender Greens, To The Point Cafe, Farmhouse Cafe, and the Pearl Hotel and Restaurant.
In addition, organizers of the farm had a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program that provided veggies for 25 local families.
Paige and Danielle have now decided this endeavor is a bit too time consuming for them. So, they have decided to turn the farm into a community garden to allow them to work towards other careers but still continue to serve the community.
Starting this month, there are garden plots for rent, starting at $16 a month. Both irrigated and non-irrigated plots are available.
