The NaturaGrow® Garden Club was started in December 2014 by five members of SHUMEI AMERICA. After watching Shumei introduce the Natural Agriculture gardening to over 2,000 women farmers in Zambia, we thought that it would be useful to also introduce Natural Agriculture to people who want to grow healthy vegetables and fruit in their own back yards!
NaturaGrow®'s Mission is to teach and inspire people to share the growing, eating, and health benefits of Natural Agriculture food products throughout the United States and beyond. We serve and educate individual gardeners, schools, businesses, and organizations about the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical connection of all things with Mother Nature, utilizing Natural Agriculture gardening and edible garden landscaping as a catalyst.
We provide our Members with detailed Step-by-step "How To- Videos" for starting, planting, maintaining, and harvesting a delicious Natural Agriculture Garden or Farm!
We also provide on-site edible garden landscaping services, for an additional fee.

Natural Agriculture is a profound reverence for Nature and its practice is guided entirely by the intrinsic wisdom of Nature. Shumei's founder, Mokichi Okada, who developed Natural Agriculture, envisioned it as not only a means of cultivating pure and wholesome food but as an art and spiritual practice. As an agricultural method it relies on understanding the subtle physical relationships and spiritual bonds that exist among all the elements involved in the cultivation of food: the earth, sun, rain, and the heart of the gardener.
