Strawberry Moon Farm Rethinks Garden Starts 

Local entrepreneur reads our paper, then plants it.

Not sure how to actually get your garden going now that we have some sunshine? That's the camp I have been in.

Strawberry Moon Farms offers a creative solution. Owner Ashley Preece-Sackett has been  reusing back issues of the Source to create herb and veggie starts. The genius of her idea is in its simplicity. She takes one old Source page, folds it and raps it around a wine bottle to create a container. She then adds organic dirt, a seed, and Voila! a start is born.

Her mature starts are only $2 and you can plant them directly into the ground since the newspaper will easily decompose, says Preece-Sackett, who has a degree in horticulture.

Next time you're at one of our local farmers markets, check out Strawberry Moon Farm and pick up some sweet basil, cabbage or cilantro. Currently, Preece-Sackett can be found at the St. Charles Medical Center (Fridays) and the Northwest Crossing Farmers Markets (Saturdays).
