Starting a successful vegetable garden = long-term PEACE of mind:


  • Personal physical & emotional well-being
  • Enhanced connection to nature and our environment creating a classroom of outdoor learning
  • Access to the healthiest food possible for your kids and family
  • Convenience of not having to go to the grocery store for every meal!
  • Eating food that you KNOW isn't grown with harsh chemicals or sprayed with harmful pesticides


Gardening is a STORY


After meeting with thousands of clients and talking through their gardening troubles, we understand more than anyone how difficult gardening can seem.

We all want our gardens to thrive and none of us have all day to care for them when juggling work and family life.

Through our experiences, we've been able to master the equation for setting up a successful vegetable garden anytime, anywhere--efficiently and at the lowest cost.

We truly want you to succeed and want to share our secrets!
