Who We Are
Philip Altomare is a botanical and horticultural expert who has been growing and selling plants for more than 25 years. He grew up in Patchogue, NY, and had his first greenhouse off the side of his mom's house at age 14. Now at Sacred Gardens, in Center Moriches he puts that experience and expertise to good use growing his own organic vegetable and herb plants to supply to the public and a large variety of cacti, succulents, fruit trees, magical and medicinal herbs and plants, and a plethora of other types of flora.
OUR MISSION is to build a community of like minded individuals who are committed to living more simply, using holistic means to heal both ourselves and the earth, and to come together regularly to exchange ideas, food, music, art and laughter.
What We Grow
During the spring and summer, We grow and sell an enormous variety of organic plant and vegetable starts. We also sell our own vegetables in small batches of rare and delicious heirloom varieties. We are now carrying a variety of artisan products in our farm shop. We also have large selection of cacti, airplants, succulents, tropicals and bonsai year round.
How We Grow
We grow our own vegetable and herb plants here from seed, in lots of amazing rare and heirloom varieties. We use organic soil and fertilizer for our potted plants, and organic fertilizer and our own compost on our fruits and vegetables along with organic means for pest control and management. We try to ensure that all who shop here with us have a great experience and gain some great insight on the best ways to be successful with their gardens. We also support local family owned long island wholesale growers, for a lot of our perennial selection and various other plants we don't grow on premises or to replace any failures we may encounter throughout the season. Finally we use lots of local poop! One of the best ways to fertilize is with manure. We use two amazing local products available from SOS for your soil, for mulching, fertilizing, and making compost tea! Their products are made from local organic aged horse manure and fine wood shavings. Also, we use the manure from our rabbits, chickens and ducks, and goats for fertilizer in our own field! So nothing is wasted on the property.
