About Square Foot Gardening
The Square Foot Gardening Foundation started back in 1981 when our Founder, Mel Bartholomew asked a few simple questions – much like the ones we are still hearing today about gardening.
Why do we plant in long rows?
Why do we plant so many seeds?
Why is there so much work?
Why do I want to weed?
Why should I garden?
Here at the Square Foot Gardening Foundation we are on a mission to change the World and make a difference locally. We believe that eating a plant based diet can help improve your life so significantly we are dedicated to using every resource we have available to reach as many of you as possible.
Today our Foundation has grown much beyond the original mission of education on a case by case need. We have our Square Foot Gardening Store that will provide you with all the materials you need to be successful – both methodology and physical products.
Schools and kids are our passion – we work hard every day to provide your schools and teachers with the curriculum and program for success – want to help us provide those dreams? Visit our donate page to learn more.
