why the bee?

bees are social creatures that know the importance of community. we were inspired by our bee companions to build a similar ecosystem of hardworking gardeners and businesses.

our story

founded by john barrack in 2018 in toronto, ontario; the vision was to build an inclusive community for plant lovers and gardeners alike. joining the journey early on, jazlyn dow & ben kelly together started bringing this vision to life. in less than a year, gardenstead has quickly grown from hundreds to thousands of loyal community members across the globe.

we cater to curious gardeners no matter their level of experience. much like how plants connect people from urban settings to large, rural backyards, gardenstead celebrates a lifestyle and connects people and businesses to a strong community.
