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
 We’d love for you to check in regularly as we plan, plant, and harvest through each season!
