We are Certified Naturally Grown, and garden with a strict rule of no: synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or fertilizers. We do use natural solutions like seawater minerals, rock minerals, microbes, seaweeds, cover crops, crop rotation, and floating row cover. At Eastward Gardens we are in the business of growing living soil to provide you and your family with nutrient dense safe food. To learn more about our growing practices (click here/ Coming soon).
