Buckminster Fuller. Geothermal geodesic domes. Daikon radishes. If you’ve never heard of these terms before, you’re not alone. But Danette Steele, owner of Genesa Garden in Drake, Colorado, will gladly tell you all about them if you visit her booth at the Fort Collins-Loveland Farmers Markets.
Danette has a long history of gardening, having toiled the soil for the past 40 years. She has also been an alternative health practitioner for over 20 years. These experiences taught Danette that people will not get well or stay well by living on processed foods, so she vowed to do her part to change her community for the better. So 8 years ago, Genesa Garden began constructing geodesic greenhouses to order and are working on perfecting them for anyone to have in their own back yard. More recently, Genesa Garden has focused on growing fresh lettuce, squash, tomatoes, kale, broccoli, kohlrabi, turnips, and more for the local farmers markets.
WHAT MAKES GENESA GARDEN UNIQUE?
Genesa Garden specializes in organic, naturally grown, chemical-free vegetables. They grow their produce above Big Thompson Canyon at 7,500 ft. above sea level! The land has never been worked and they never use any chemicals.
