Stay Healthy

Atherton Mill and Market

We were in search of an Organic Gardening person to teach a workshop through CLC.  It was an unusually warm Saturday in December when my wife and I happened upon Atherton Mill and Market while touring on our motorcycle.

Matt Kokenes,

When I got off the bike and saw Matt’s signage and his raised bed organic garden, it hit me…. This is the guy to teach the class.  When we first discussed it the enthusiasm was palpable between us.  He is highly knowledgeable and passionate about his craft.  Moreover he’s a genuine guy with all the trimmings of a true entrepreneur and the humility of a gardener.

Why take a class?

Fresh Healthy Produce picked at home. If you have an inerest in growing fresh organic produce you will learn how to amend soil to promote healthy growth, appreciate the easy care of a raised bed and how to grow and harvest quality organic produce right from your own backyard, terrace, or rooftop! Have some fun, spend time with friends and family.

With Matt Kokenes

Matt owns Microfarm Organic Gardens which is solely devoted to organic edible gardening.  He feels everyone should have the opportunity to grow their own fruits, vegetables and herbs, so he designs gardens of all shapes and sizes, out of a range of materials, to suit any taste and budget. He knows that not everyone has a green thumb, or a lot of free time, so he’s also available to tackle the routine maintenance that’s critical to make sure of a healthy harvest.  He believes strongly in using renewable resources in our organic gardens, and can help you begin recycling programs that will turn available material like leaves and food scraps into rich, organic compost, and collect and use rainwater in your garden.
