Growing Grounds Farm, Santa Maria

Dear Friends,

We regretfully announce the annual Everything Edible sale we all love has been cancelled this year. Thank you for your support, and please take care of yourselves in this challenging time. 

We know that people still want to garden and need to connect to the earth. Healthy eating, food security and locally sourced food are all on our minds.

At Growing Grounds Farm Santa Maria we’ve grown the most beautiful and healthy vegetable plants and we want to make these available to all our gardening friends.

To facilitate this we are asking that you take the following steps:

1. Click here to access our current (and often changing) availability.

2. Put together your order and email Christine Story at

3. We will have your order ready for pick up at Growing Grounds Nursery at 3740 Orcutt Road, SLO on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1-3pm. Other times may be available but please email for details and special requests. Payment can be made by credit card at the time of pick-up.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Please share this info with your gardening friends. Stay healthy and well and we’ll see you all soon!
