Here’s what others are saying:

The Patio Farmer is of great value to our local food, wellness, and gardening community! I have learned so much from Erin. She leads her business with heart, intention and lots of farming/agriculture experience and helpful knowledge. I have been gardening for a few years; I was still not sure on which way to go about building a raised bed garden on our very small front lawn (I live in a duplex). Erin visited me and assessed the space. She followed up with a well-written step-by-step plan including the exact materials I needed to purchase. It made it much easier to achieve my desired goal with such a well-curated plan. Her plant products are all healthy and local. This service completely enriches our community, and I am happy to be connected to it!

Erin helped me understand the best ways to utilize a raised bed garden. She didn’t just tell me what to do, she showed me by planting with me. Her products and service are superior. She is friendly, knowledgeable and a go-getter. I highly recommend The Patio Farmer!

While I don’t live on the East Coast anymore, I do rely on Erin’s infinite garden knowledge to help me keep my basil and peppers alive! She helped when I had strange bugs attacking my basil and how to properly protect my plants without chemicals. Her passion for plants and all living things is very clear the moment you speak with her. I highly recommend!
