My Productive Backyard was created with one goal in mind – to get everyone, no matter how black their thumbs or small their garden, to grow some of their own food at home.
From there, My Productive Backyard evolved into an online blog where Kathy shared what was happening each week in her garden. Due to overwhelming demand, Kathy started offering consultations and growing guides online to help those people – people who needed more in-depth information to get the help they needed.
In 2017 with a fresh website design and more time on her hands, Kathy launched herself and her business into the next phase, assisting the local community in sustainability projects and developing programs for children. 2016 also saw the garden being opened to the public for events and tours under the name ‘The Secret Garden’ for the first time in its 25 year history.
Who knows what the future holds for My Productive Backyard. But one thing will always be the same – a dedication to helping everyone grow a bit of their own at home.
