Soil Signups are Closed for 2021

NEW for 2021! 

Does your existing Chard Your Yard bed need some soil amendment?  Are you adding your own garden in 2021?  Are you going to grow some tomatoes in a big pot on the deck?  We have some soil for that!

In addition to gardens we are now offering soil by the 5 gallon bucket.  That equals about 2/3 of a cubic foot of soil for whatever you are growing.

Soil Cost

Chard Your Yard will be selling buckets of dirt for $2.00 per 5 gallon bucket.

Some of the proceeds from the dirt will be used to help subsidize garden beds for low income households and persons with diabilities. 

Soil Pickup - NO DELIVERIES, you must pickup yourself!

Dirt will be available for pick up the last week of April and first week of May. Please bring your own 5 gallon buckets for the dirt.

Sign up online to purchase dirt and we will email you the address for the dirt location. Some of the proceeds from the dirt will be used to help subsidize garden beds for low income households.

A Note on Jumping Worms
