The Mission of H.O.P.E. gardens is to bring sustainable, no-till organic gardening practices to the market place for the purpose of supplying healthy, affordable sources of food to those that are challenged with finances, growing conditions and time. From a gardening practice standpoint, H.O.P.E. organic “covering” methods provide a rich soil base for growing in most climates. It requires little to no watering and provides a weed barrier and minimizes maintenance during the growing season and preparation in spring and fall by a process of recreating the forest floor.
