Toronto, Canada, May 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- With the end of Mother Nature’s seasonal renaissance, more and more gardening enthusiasts are ending their hibernation and crawling out of their caves to see that their gardens have been splashed in colour. From limes to red leaf lettuce, fresh fruits and vegetables of every variety are springing up from the soil and into local markets.
This summer, the gardeners at Backyard Urban Farm Co. (BUFCO) will be attending local farmer’s markets across Toronto to promote urban gardening, share their tips about garden maintenance, and sell their certified organic seedlings. Farmer’s markets bring local food to local communities and educate urbanites on how they can be more health conscious by simply eating organically.
What many organic gardeners eventually come to realize is the importance of eating according to the seasons instead of modifying food. Watermelon, Yukon gold potatoes, eggplant, and blueberries are just some of the many fruits and vegetables that are in season every June, July, and August. Unlike store-bought food, all food found at a farmer’s market will be fresh and in season.
Organic local food growers and residents who are interested in urban gardening and attending local farmer’s markets can do so any day of the week. Visit BUFCO's website to learn more about sustainable, garden coaching services or where they will be selling their organic seedlings.
BUFCO is dedicated to participating in a worldwide food movement that encourages lowering society’s carbon footprint and trying to live more sustainably, naturally, independently, and locally. Planting and saving heirloom and non-GMO seeds (genetically modified organisms) and preserving the harvest are one of their top priorities. BUFCO also continually gives back to the community by sharing a portion of their harvest with their neighbours and local food banks. BUFCO brings new opportunities for families and individuals to learn, teach, relax, play in and eat from their own gardens. By tending a garden, we feed our minds, bodies, souls, and contribute to the greater good.
