The vision of the urban agriculture program at the HCSWCD is to sustain the urban agriculture movement within Hamilton County.
The technical assistance offers consulting and guidance on topics like:
Starting a new backyard or community garden
Balancing goals and expectations
Site planning and analysis
Soil testing and analysis
Nutrient and soil management
Weed and pest management
What does it look like? A typical site visit includes examining the premises and the proposed garden site(s) along with questions to identify goals and objectives. Depending on the goals and objectives, a follow up ‘Garden and Conservation Plan’ will be offered along with possible additional site visits.
