Ready to Grow Gardens is owned and operated by Stephanie Baker in Cypress, Texas.Stephanie earned her Texas Master Gardener Certification from the Texas Cooperative Extensive and Harris County Master Gardener Association in June of 2003.
She was named Outstanding Volunteer for the fall class of 2002 in recognition of her outstanding service of over 220 volunteer hours. Her volunteer work was primarily spent with students at Sheridan Elementary where two days a week she taught two hundred third graders how to grow a variety of vegetables out of 70 individual container gardens.
Since that time, she has worked to design and build 16 other elementary school gardens. She is currently working with 13 elementary schools and one private early educationcenter, where she teaches a unique hands-on nature/ gardening program. In each outdoor classroom students learn to how grow vegetables from seed, how care for the crop organically, and how to enjoy the harvest! All lessons prepared and taught by Ms Baker are in line with TEKS and each school’s science objectives set by the district. Ms. Baker teaches students Kindergarten through 5th grade and manages each garden’s growth and development. School volunteers are always an important key to success with activities such as watering, weeding, and special projects like “Salad Party Day” where students discover the joy of eating fresh veggies from their own garden!
In the summer of 2009 she expanded her business to included working with homeowners to build successful vegetable gardens in their own back yard. She has found that today’s busy parents are often excited to grow fresh organic vegetables from home but don’t have the time or information needed to know where to start and what to grow during each season.
