What size garden do you have? (approximately)

Our Smart Gardens are carefully designed to produce food with minimum effort and space, while reducing our footprint and saving money too.

We pick our greens and herbs when we need them, packaging-free and fresh from our doorstep (or balcony!). We grow treasured food plants that are not available in shops, evoking memories of home and allowing traditions to continue so we can share authentic dishes with family, friends and neighbours. By saving our own locally-adapted seeds, we preserve agricultural biodiversity for future generations.
