Hi, and welcome to McGuire Organics! My name is Stephen McGuire – you can call me “Steve” for short. I am from the Brockton, Massachusetts area, just a little bit south of Boston. I live with my wife and 2 children.

I am a classically trained chef from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. I have worked at the Ritz Carlton in Boston, MA, The Four Seasons in Palm Beach, FL, and Spargo in Maui, HI.

When my son was born we found out that he was born with a number of food allergies. So I decided to start growing my own food in the backyard.Welcome - Stephen McGuire

I did some research on how to make my own compost. When doing so, I read an article about Vermicomposting (a.k.a. composting with worms).

I found out that Vermicompost is a more superior compost with more nutrients and microbes in it than a typical backyard compost has in it. So I decided to get a pound of worms and see how it was.

That, my friends, is how McGuire Organics started up.

My number one goal for McGuire Organics is to show you how easy and simple it is to grow your own food. That it can be fun and educational for the young ones.

Also, that you can make your own fertilizer from your own household garbage like paper, cardboard, and produce scraps.

My personal belief is that if you “give a man a fish you could feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish you feed him for a lifetime”

A garden is an investment but one of the best things is after the garden is built and after your first harvest you will be able to harvest your seeds and continue to grow and eat for free.

I hope that you come along for the journey of McGuire Organics with me, and start growing your own foods.
