We’d love to help with your edible garden.
If you have a lot of open sunny space in your yard a consultation is probably not necessary, however for those with small yards with irregular space or for those wanting a custom garden, we offer in-person consultations. In-person consultations are about an hour and price is $175 (in Miami-Dade), $275 (in Broward). We can also do free virtual consultations using satellite imagery and photos.
Keep in mind that the sunniest parts of your property are where edible gardens will do the best. Most edible plants need at least 6 hours of direct light to thrive. Thats we look for when deciding how to place an edible garden in a space.
We generally only travel as far south as Key Largo and as far north as Boca Raton, but we can make exceptions sometimes.
For those of you that only need materials for your garden (veggie/herb plants, soil, organic fertilizer, etc) they can be purchased from our nursery in Horse Country by appointment. Appointments can be scheduled online at our appointments page.

Here is a great video by John Kohler of Growing Your Greens that he made at our nursery and demonstration garden. We will be making more educational videos in the future. Some can be seen on our instagram and facebook pages.
Ready-to-Grow Gardens was started by Miami native, Dylan Terry. He began gardening as a teenager. While a student, he managed New College of Florida’s edible garden. Since then, Ready-to-Grow has planned, installed, and maintained organic edible gardens all over South Florida and has had the help of many along the way.
The vision of Ready-to-Grow Gardens is to give people access to local, nutritious and safe food sources through organic edible garden design, installation, and maintenance. In this globalized economy, an enormous amount of energy is used just in the transportation of food, and the actual creation of the food has led to countless irreversible environmental problems. There is much work to be done to improve the system in which we get food and the way in which it is produced.
By and large, our society’s landscapes favors ornament over functional value and don’t offer much to provide food for people and wildlife. The more it costs to transport food long distances with rising fuel cost, the greater the need will be for people to grow food closer to where they live.
Growing one’s food and helping others to do the same is a bold step to living a healthier, and more ecologically responsible life. Ready-to-Grow Gardens is here to help.
