Creative Green Gardens began as a demonstration and learning garden for the books and articles that Carissa writes for the website Creative Green Living.
Our business is expanding and now also includes products grown and produced at the farm, as well as organic and non-GMO seeds and plant starts. Our CEO, Carissa, also offers garden consultations, mason bee mentoring and chicken keeper coaching both virtually and for residents of Kitsap County region as well as the greater Clark County and Vancouver, WA metro area.
