Elm Street Gardens reached an important milestone this past week: We are now officially a certified organic operation. We were all delighted to receive the certificate stating that Elm Street Gardens “meets the strict standards to be CERTIFIED ORGANIC.”
Elm Street Gardens Manager, Jim Fraser, gets the credit for this achievement. Robert and I started the gardens in this direction and maintained organic standards from the very beginning of our garden here on Elm Street, but Jim is the one who has not only maintained those standards for over the past year, but also took them to new heights. He also was the one to go through the certification process and all the record keeping and work that requires.
We are very proud of this milestone. It’s a big deal for us and opens a new chapter in the Elm Street Gardens story.
