CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- If you've ever thought about starting a garden, there's a simple way to do it.


The Garden Growers is a small company here in the Charlotte area…offering a wide-range of gardening and farming expertise and services to anyone interested in learning how to eat organically and locally.

Their mission is to teach organic, sustainable and low maintenance ways to grow an edible garden.

Organic Growers believes in sustainable and organic gardening practices. They use only natural fertilizers and organic matter such as leaves, compost, manure and beautiful and healthy garden.

To combat insects, they use integrated pest management (IPM) and other organic methods to help grow pesticide-free food. IPM means the insect population is not destroyed in your yard. Instead, specific pest problems are targeted, leaving the beneficial insects needed for pollination, unharmed.

On Larry's Look the morning, Jason Loseke from The Garden Growers, we got a close-up look at the organic gardening process. 

He demonstrated just how easy it is to grow in your backyard---what you find at the farmer's market!
