Hello! My name’s Helena and after 8 years of cultivating my backyard garden, I’ve finally decided to document the successes and hurdles from growing my own food. I’ll be sharing how-to’s, backyard project ideas, and vegan recipes, using garden pickings whenever possible.
Urban Valley Farm Facts:
- The “farm” is really just the backyard of our house, which is about 2000 sq ft of space
- We’re in zone 9b, in the San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles
- There are also 6 chickens, 2 dogs, and 2 cats that live on the “farm”
- My husband is a big help in the garden and we usually partner up to build things and plan larger projects
