Providing The Best Organic and Sustainable Produce

We operate from the understanding that the health of ourselves, our communities, and our planet is interconnected. That is why we are committed to ecologically responsible farming practices and local markets for fresh food. For us that means no synthetic chemicals are used in our gardens and the food we source from other organic farms is as close as possible to our market to conserve energy.

Our gardening strategy begins with building a healthy soil ecosystem. Plants thrive in a biodiverse environment, where the soil is full of microbial life and an abundance of insects. A balanced soil ecosystem can also mitigate the damage caused by garden pests in many cases. So to create that kind of environment, we start by adding lots of organic matter to the soil. We use animal manures and green manures to keep the soil well fed and we make use of the age-old practice of crop rotation to reduce disease and pest pressures in the garden. We conserve water by using drip irrigation and lots of mulch whenever possible.

We use many methods that were honed by our forefathers which sustained healthy life on this planet for many centuries. Returning to the basics of crop rotation and applying animal manure allows us to provide vibrant, nourishing food to our community while preserving the health of our ecosystem simultaneously.

We are passionate about ensuring our customers receive the freshest local organic produce available at the most affordable prices possible. Some of our produce is grown on our urban farm in a residential neighborhood in Denton, demonstrating the potential of vacant land in the city for growing food. All of our produce is either grown organically in Denton or harvested from organic farms within a 100 mile radius of Denton, Texas.

Earthwise Partners with Johnson’s Backyard Garden!

We are very excited to announce that Earthwise is merging with Johnson’s Backyard Garden in Austin to bring the good people of North Texas more delicious, local organic produce!
 

This merger will be effective March 1st and will allow us to expand our farm production substantially. This spring we are planting our two market garden plots here in Denton, but we are actively looking for a 5-10 acre lease in the surrounding area to build a certified organic farm that will serve North Texas!

 

Partnering with an established farm like JBG will give us access to the resources, support and knowledge we need to expand our farm and get our acreage certified organic. We know that our area needs more farms growing healthy fresh food, and we are dedicated to making that happen. Our goal is to expand access, availability and awareness of fresh local food in our community and this partnership is a huge step in that direction.
 

Earthwise Produce Shop will stay open for business as usual. We will still carry all of the same products that we do currently.
 

Earthwise Gardens CSA and market garden will become JBG Denton, and Ryan will be the Farm Manager for JBG’s operations in North Texas.  We will sell at the market under the JBG Denton name, and the CSA will be administered by JBG.  We are particularly excited about the CSA partnership because Johnson’s has just introduced lots of great new options for their customers.

They have 4 different sized shares to choose from, available for weekly or bi-weekly pick up, and they just announced that they will be rolling out software within the next month that will allow you the option to customize your weekly CSA share! You will be able to select your favorite veggies from a weekly list of availability if you so choose.

We want to make this transition as seamless as possible for our customers, we are very grateful everyday for your support! Here’s what you can expect:

 

Sign up and payment will be done exclusively online at www.jbgorganic.com. When you sign up you will select your preferences including your pick up location and time. For Denton, there will be two options: Earthwise Produce Shop from 10-7p on Thursdays (Primary), and during the market season, JBG Denton Market Stall at Denton Community Market Saturday from 9-noon.  If you have been picking up at the shop on Fridays, we will continue to store your box, just keep in mind the veggies are going to be best picked up ASAP so that you can store them properly. All missed shares will be donated Monday mornings to Health Services of North Texas. 

 

We will host an information session soon to answer any questions you may have, more information to follow, but that’s more than enough for now!

Thank you,
Ryan and Christina
