One Backyard At A Time

What could be better than people helping others to start a garden? The women behind "Your Backyard Farmer" in Portland, Oregon landed serendipitously into a hot business idea that they love doing.

Donna Smith and Robin Streeter help people make the beautiful transformation from backyards to gardens. Immediately after starting their business, they were booked a year and a half forward.

Turning barren lawns and backyards into luscious gardens -- what a dream job!

Robin explains: "We were going to do a CSA, but realized that there are all these backyards and lawns. If we do it in THEIR space, they get to see what's happening, they get to know who the farmer is, they get to walk outside -- and eat."
