SUV Consultants

Outside2Inside will be your Sustainable Urban Village (SUV) Consultants, helping create a beautiful community garden amidst the urban cities. We meticulously follow the steps below to find the right space, to create a healthy and sustainable urban garden in your community. We as SUV Consultants, bring people and different organizations together to learn which issues are important to the community where we are building the garden to discuss how an urban community garden – whether a community space or individual plots – could serve the needs of the community. We hold regular meetings to collaborate on ideas and goals to help  develop a plan of action and to get people energized and organized. 

Identify the Need

As SUV Consultants we work with you to understand what type of urban community garden one wants to plant? Depending on the type of garden, one can increase access to fresh, healthy food in the area.

Be Eco Friendly

Before gardening on the site, we research its history and past uses. We do this by taking samples of the soil and have them analyzed to find out the soil type and quality. We consult the state environmental agency, local health department or  county’s cooperative extension office to determine the quality of the soil, as it has an effect on the design of the urban community garden.

Fit your Need

Knowing that every urban community garden is different, we design the garden to fit the needs of the community. We consider factors such as: age-appropriate design, accessibility, protection from animals or vandalism, storage of tools and plenty of room for all the community gardeners.
