    Why

    Why

    We love gardening, no two ways around it.

    We love gardeners.

    They’re the coolest, most open-minded people around.

    We feel lucky doing a job we love.

    We opened this garden center

    because it’s a fantastic way

    to meet like-minded people,

    growing plants, friendship and community,

    one seed at a time.
