Growing Grounds Farm, Santa Maria

The Santa Maria Growing Grounds Farm is closed unless otherwise arranged. Please see the instructions below for purchases and contact information. Thank you!

As we transition into the summer months we will no longer be posting our plant availability weekly. We encourage our nursery customers to make an appointment to come shop here at the nursery. We will have veggie garden starts as well as some lovely native, drought tolerant, and succulent plants available throughout the summer. Please note that we will continue to take phone and email orders for folks who prefer to order that way. We are continuing to take orders for weekly veggie bags. Bags are picked up here at the farm on Thursdays between 12-2PM. The summer days are growing a bounty of produce. This week’s bags will have plums, apricots, lettuce, green beans, Swiss chard, green onions, zucchini and more!

*New this week!*

We will also be taking phone orders for select produce a la carte. This week we will have:
Zucchini $2 for 1 lb.
Yellow Squash $2 for 1 lb.
Toscano Kale $2 a bunch
Lettuce heads $2 each
Salad Mix $2 for 1/2 lb. bag

Please call 805-934-2182 or email to make an appointment or to place an order.

Additionally, we are offering $6 bouquets this week. These can be added on to a produce bag or ordered separately.

Wishing all our customers a safe and happy 4th of July!
