Homestead Growers is a Bay-Friendly Place

by Susan Harris
You may have visited Homestead Growers, our 250-acre facility just down the road from our Davidsonville store – probably at Christmastime to admire the poinsettias, right? And you got to see cool displays like this.

But prepare to be jealous, now – because as Homestead’s gardenblogger, I managed to snag a private tour, on which I snapped these photos:

These scenes from my private “tour” illustrate how Homestead Growers attains its status as a “no run-off facility”, which is especially important for a growing facility so close to the Bay. All water is recycled, and none leaves the property. No run-off at ALL. So congratulations to head grower Oliver Storm and his team!
