We opened our retail store in Hood River in 2012 called Grow Organic to support The Gorge’s agricultural base by consolidating a wide range of organic and sustainable home, farm and garden products from local & regional sources. We also offer educational workshops on topics such as organic gardening, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), organic disease control, healthy-soil building, beekeeping, worm composting (vermiculture), permaculture design, and many others.
Grow can help you in your organic goals be they big, little or on the horizon. Look to Grow as your source for organic farm and garden supplies and a variety of related products (kits and materials) for D.O.Y. (Doing Organic Yourself). Research based, up-to-date information is key to your success, so we will be happy to provide materials and services that help deepen your understanding of organic methods. Give us a call as we’ll be happy to answer any question you have.
