The Santa Ynez Valley welcomes Down to Earth Gardening Solutions, a new business specializing in organic and heirloom gardening with a penchant for teaching. Brothers Nathaniel and Seamus Ethridge, along with Seamus’ partner Adrienne, envision a place where Santa Ynez Valley residents can learn about creating sustainable gardens with an emphasis on organic and non-GMO plantings. The store will offer everything from soil to seeds and all of the tools needed to start and maintain a beautiful garden. In addition to selling an array of helpful books, the store will also be hosting a series of garden workshops with expert speakers throughout the year.
“We saw a need in the Valley for a place where conscientious gardeners could come to get everything they need for a safe, healthy garden,” says co-owner Adrienne Veillette. “We are excited to bring our community the educational resources to make that happen.”
The store will host a Grand Opening celebration on Saturday, November 30th, 2013 from 10:00am- 6:00pm and will include door prizes and refreshments. “We’ve had quite a few people stopping by, very interested in our business. I think the Valley is ready for a place where they can go to help them produce food and flowers without the use of chemicals,” says Veillette. All customers who attend the Grand Opening will receive 20% off all items in the store.
Down To Earth Gardening Solutions is open Tuesday-Saturday from 9:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am to 6:00pm. They are located at 141G East Highway 246, right behind Napa Auto Parts in Buellton, California. For more information please visit www.d2e.com or call (805) 686-4444.
