who we are
If you like to get your hands dirty, we’re right there with you. And if you’d like to read a little bit more about what we’re all about, you’ve landed in the right spot.
who we are
Gardenstead is an inclusive, online community of gardeners and gardening enthusiasts
of all levels who love to get their hands dirty — indoors and out. Our gardeners run the gamut. They are vegetable gardeners, houseplant nurturers, small space gardening engineers, herbalists, flower enthusiasts and succulent aficionados.
Our goal has always been to connect gardeners, foster and share knowledge,
and make gardening resources available to everyone.
As we grow, we seek to expand our conversations about gardening and to
cultivate a mindful embrace of nature and the healing and grounding properties
to be found in it.
Plants cultivate connections between people — from urban settings of balcony gardens
and small spaces to rural backyards with larger and more expansive gardens. We hope
you’ll join us as we continue to nurture these connections and create new ones.
why the bee?
Bees are social creatures that know the importance of community. Bees support the growth of trees, flowers and many other plants and contribute to the growth of complex ecosystems. Their contributions to nature and overall importance to the health of the environment cannot be overstated.
We were inspired by our bee companions to build a similar ecosystem of hardworking gardeners and businesses, and to support the environments in which they play such an important role.
