I’m teaming up with the amazingly resourceful and innovative Erica from Owning Burton Farm  to bring you a series all about Frugal Gardening!  If you haven’t been over to Owning Burton Farm  yet, here’s Erica to introduce herself:

climbing out of debt and diggin in the dirt

Hi! I’m Erica Burton from Owning Burton Farm and I’m excited to be collaborating with Emma to bring you a series built to inspire you to grow your best garden this year, even if you think gardening is too expensive! At Owning Burton Farm, we’re climbing out of $276,243.63 in debt, so we are always looking for inventive ways to save money while we pursue our homesteading passion. Gardening is one of our favorite ways to save money, involve our children, and re-purpose things usefully. Whether you decide to start with a window herb garden, or work 500 square feet, we can’t wait to motivate you to dig in and get growing.

We want to bust the myth that gardening is expensive, show you the real cost in getting started and how you can get growing right now without breaking the bank.

From seed starting to harvesting we’re going to help you along the way…

Frugal Gardening Tips

Psst you can re-use containers to start seeds in!

We’re going to show you how to reuse, recycle, upcycle and more to grow a fabulously frugal garden this year!  

Just because something is secondhand doesn’t make it an eyesore or ugly in the garden.
