Connie and Patrick Lahr are taking the concept of square foot gardening around the world.
Gardening World Wide Formerly known as Haiti Gardens, has been helping since 1984 including four years in Haiti from 1985 to 1989. They support small family garden projects to provide food for the household that gives nutrition and energy to its members thus enabling them to fully carry on daily activity. We promote stewardship of the land via composting and caring for the land in harmony with God’s Nature.
The method the Lahrs teach is called Square Foot Gardening, an approach developed by Mel Bartholomew. Square Foot Gardening is a method of planting not in rows but in a four-foot square, divided by a grid into 16 one-foot squares. Planting up to 16 different vegetables and fruits and rotating what is planted year-to-year, the raised garden with its special soil mix can produce abundant food.
Along with their mission work in Haiti they also teach Square Foot Gardening through community education classes and teach gardening to children in area schools.
