Welcome to Know Your Roots, LLC!
We are a team of Sustainability Consultants & Backyard Growers that provide our community with the opportunity to
grow together and build a local & healthy food system.
We do so by offering an extensive selection of heirloom and naturally grown starter plants for your garden. We also provide project management, event planning & marketing services, with emphasis on efficiency and organizational growth.
We started Know Your Roots, in honor of our decision to spread our own roots by building our urban mini farm and growing our family in Ohio.
The name is intended to remind and educate on the importance of relationships, a strong local economy and knowing where our food comes from.
The seeds we grow in the garden and throughout our community have been in existence for centuries. If we can learn from such, we can work together to ensure they will be available for the generations of tomorrow.
In the production of our starter plants, we utilize Espoma Organic Fertilizer (as needed) and Pro Mix potting soil. Our plants get their start in a solar and natural gas managed greenhouse. As soon as nature allows, they are moved to a greenhouse, heated solely by passive solar power.
Our starter plants are available by appointment and at local markets
April through September.
We also farm our plants on 1/2 acre local plots, where we utilize raised beds with drip irrigation, companion planting, beneficial insect lures, crop rotating, composting and fish emulsion fertilizer to continue their chemical free growth into delicious and beautiful fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs.
From the garden, to the community that we live in, we love to GROW!
With professional experience in project management, finance, education and organizational communication, we will efficiently and effectively provide the consulting support needed to build your own backyard mini farm, business and/or organization in Northeast Ohio.
