Modern Farmsteads was exactly what I needed to jumpstart my garden design. We don’t have a very big area, but Christina was full of great ideas and left me with a layout for my boxes, product, and plant options and best of all - her idea for a cutting flower bed.

Such a wealth of information and a genuine desire to help. I asked about a thousand questions and each one was answered or researched to confirm the correct information was given. I'm very excited to put my new garden knowledge into action.

Christina and Jochen are incredibly creative and passionate gardeners. Their knowledge isn’t only theoretical, it comes out of a place of personal practice. Highly resourceful & ingenious, they have listened well to my challenges so that their solutions come from a place of really understanding my growing space and particular context.

Christina came to my house for a complete re-education of the home gardening process, including information on soil, starting seeds and hardening seedlings, insight on the best plants to grow for the location, and where to plant them with my specific setup. She came prepared with book recommendations and even helped me to organize my own seed collection. The best part of the consult was her patience in answering the many troubleshooting questions that were specific only to my situation and therefore hard to google my way out of of. Our quick meeting was infinitely productive and I would highly recommend doing a garden consult with Modern Farmsteads to anyone looking to become more active and proficient in their garden - whether you're a complete newbie or old pro, she has a wealth of information to share with everyone.

I moved from LA to Boulder and wanted to start growing vegetables, but just didn’t know where to start. Christina was so thorough when we met. After seeing all the success she has had in her gardening efforts, I am so excited to move ahead with raised beds of my own.
