Hayground Organic Gardening




Meet Jimmy Williams, owner of Hayground Organic Gardening (he's the one with the blue t-shirt in the photo)! I have been buying seedlings from him this year. He has an outpost at the Santa Monica Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays at Third and Arizona. He is an organic farmer, who, with his family, grows their infamous veggies and herbs at their Hollywood Hills Bungalow. They have all sorts of heirloom varieties. Their Goose Creek Tomato is particularly interesting and has an amazing history! These plants have been passed down for generations since Jimmy’s great grandmother came from the Caribbean as a slave, she smuggled the seeds in her pocket and planted them in Goosecreek, South Carolina. I will be planting one in the next few weeks!
