Each garden and gardener are unique, so Megan creates a garden coach and/or edible landscape design package to suit the specific needs of each client. Here's a few examples:
The Full Treatment — After conducting an in-depth interview with the client, Megan creates a site design and garden management plan, which includes spreadsheets with plant requirements, timelines, work guidance and crop succession plans. She works with the client about eight times throughout the year, two to five hours a session, to set up the garden beds, prep and plant, perform pest control, prune and trellis, trouble shoot, harvest, build season extension structures and prepare the beds for winter. Megan is also available throughout the year to answer clients' questions via email and phone.
A Phone Call Away — For those clients who have established garden beds, but still need instruction on caring for the plants throughout the year. Megan is available throughout the year to answer questions via email and phone. Includes approximately three visits to the client's site.
A Day in the Garden — Megan provides instruction at the client's garden on one or more of the following topics: setting up no-till gardens; prepping beds and planting; managing pests; pruning and trellising; building season extension structures; preparing the garden for the winter. Sessions typically last two to four hours.
Personalized design and management plan — Megan creates a site design and garden management plan, including spreadsheets with plant requirements, timelines, work guidance and crop succession plans. Includes at least one site visit and in-depth interview.
Coaching and design fees vary depending on the needs of the client and size of the property. Megan is currently offering a special for a $25 initial consultation and site visit, which usually takes about an hour. That consultation fee is waived if the customer commits to a package that day. Megan offers a sliding scale for her services to encourage so that all layers of the community can try edible landscaping.
