If you are a home gardener, please refer to the Home Garden Information CenterThey have a lot of helpful resources, including an Ask an Expert hotline, and will be better able to answer gardening questions than Neith would be. 

If you have a farming-related question, please start by looking over the Frequently Asked Questions at the Urban Agriculture website. If you don't see something relevant to your question there, please contact Neith at

Please understand that we receive a lot of requests, so it may take some time to get back to you. If you don't hear back within two weeks, please send your e-mail again.
