Welcome to Friday’s Featured Artisan! Each week, we focus on one of the many talented individuals and companies whose perfect products are proudly featured in GiftTree gifts. It may be a master chocolatier, a gourmet cheesemonger or a talented artist – GiftTree is here to connect their meaningful stories to the discovery of your next great gifting moment.
With Earth Day approaching, this Friday’s Featured Artisan is Urban Agriculture Co., a company whose offerings inspire us to get our hands dirty and grow something green and beautiful, any time of the year. Based in Los Angeles, Urban Agriculture Co.’s founder Chad Corzine got the idea when he was inspired to grow his own organic herbs and vegetables on his tiny apartment balcony in LA. What seemed like an attainable project at first turned into a quite an ordeal as he realized that he had trouble finding all the right ingredients and equipment to complete his vision. That’s when he founded Urban Agriculture – simplifying and combining everything needed for a perfect growing experience, plus direct sun and proper watering- we had designed what I had been looking for all along.
“Our grow kits are designed to simplify the process of city gardening by providing you with everything needed for a fun and easy growing experience. All of our grow kits come with one pack of organic seeds, one balanced bag of organic soil and one container to grow the plant in. Our containers are made from 100% recycled tea bags allowing for perfectly drained and aerated soil, not to mention a very cool urban look. We offer a variety of flowers, cooking herbs and vegetables to help urban dwellers have a well-rounded garden.” – Chad Corzine, Founder of Urban Agriculture Co.
Chosen as Oprah’s Gift of the Year, the Organic Snapdragon Kit holds everything needed to grow beautiful pink snapdragons: organic growing soil, snapdragon seeds and a growing container made from recycled tea bags.
