Sustainability Goals:
Our sustainability goals change to keep up with the ever-changing environment. I've never had to mulch my raised beds before, but with temperatures rising, and low humidity this year, I will start mulching. We just started vermicomposting this year, which gives our kitchen scraps a home, but we are working on sectioning off a large area for hot composting so we can further reduce our carbon footprint.

Self taught gardner growing organic food in my backyard not only to feed my family but to share with others year round in my desert garden.
Vego Favorites:
Sustainability Goals:
Getting others involved with being more sustainable by teaching them how easy it is to save seeds, recycle, compost & grow their own food. If everyone took a community minded action, no matter how small, the world would be a better place for it. More people growing their own food= no poverty, zero hunger, good health & well being.

I've been gardening for about 4 years and I'm 30 years old. I love growing all the classics like tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers, but I also try to grow something new and weird each year just to find out if I like it or not. My latest learning experience has been asparagus and it might just be one of the strangest things I've grown. Outside of gardening, I'm an attorney. I own my own law firm with my husband and we practice primarily estate planning and probate law. My other hobbies include playing pickleball and pampering my two dogs.
Vego Favorites:
Any of the raised beds, always in cream!
Sustainability Goals:
I'm always looking for small and big ways to improve my sustainability in my everyday life. A big achievement for me has been learning to compost and I hope to create less and less waste every year.

Vego Favorites:
Sustainability Goals:
gardening in support of my own mental health, eating seasonally and freshly, reducing waste by composting and cutting the length of my food supply chain by growing my own, becoming more self-reliable by means of developing my gardening skills and seed saving.

I’m Katie, from the Central Valley in California, and we practice Organic Gardening with our kids to teach them about the food they eat and how to maintain a healthy ecosystem in our spaces. Over the years, we've accumulated up to 40 varieties of fruits and vegetables in our beds and are always learning about more. I grew up watching my grandmother grow the most luscious garden in her small Los Angeles backyard, filled with tomatoes and green beans. She would tell me stories of growing up on a farm in the South and growing their own food. She taught me a few garden hacks along the way that are easy and have some old-world wisdom that we love to share.

Growing food to freeze and save for the winter, while having fresh food throughout the year.

I'm Oma, which means grandma, and these are my gardens. I've enjoyed gardening for 30 years. A beautiful garden is like coming home. It's that piece of art that makes the room warm. Except, instead of just being art that one can see, a garden is art that one can smell, feel and taste. Gardening brings peace to one's mind and nurisment to one's body and Vego Gardens make gardening even easier! I simply love seeing them in my space and it's a joy sharing this love with others. Meet me in the garden for tips and inspiration on creating your own garden dreams.
Vego Favorites:
The classic 17 inch 9 or 10 in one beds are my favorite as they provide so many simple beautiful options to use them!! The Vego garden bag is also a favorite and makes carrying around all those garden tools a breeze. Things I'm dying to try? The 32 inch beds and the winter frost covers are definitely on my list!! Just imagine all those winter greens❤
Sustainability Goals:
To continue to learn and improve my ability to grow in any climate using the most sustainably organic and natural products.

Professor Mint
My name is Stefane, but most know me as Professor Mint. Gardening has been passed down in my family for generations, and is an important part of my heritage. My gardening journey truly started when my grandma passed down a set of pigeon pea seeds to me that were passed down to her from her father. It led to me having quite a passion and curiosity for seeds and growing unusual heirloom varieties from all different backgrounds. My quirkiness definitely shows in the chaotic little jungle I’ve created over the years. I’ve managed to cram a vast variety of things in my small backyard, including a large amount of tropical fruit trees. I love pushing the boundaries of what I can grow in my zone 10b, and bringing my Caribbean roots into my garden. My favorite things to grow are my grandmas pigeon pea mix, lots of colorful hot peppers, and different types of eggplants.
Vego Favorites:
My favorite raised bed is the 17 inch round garden bed in olive green, because it’s compact enough to fit pretty much anywhere in my garden. I also love the Vego garden bag, it holds a ton, and makes gardening so much easier.
Sustainability Goals:
I love to cook, and my goals mainly revolve around producing as much of my own organic, quality herbs, fruits, and veggies to create my dishes. I also try to reduce my waste as much as possible, by recycling and reusing what I can right back into my garden.

Tien H.
I am a registered dietitian by profession, wife to an architectural designer, and mother to four little humans. Although I’ve always been surrounded by avid gardeners, it never occurred to me to start growing my own food until I had my first child. My first “garden” was a couple of little planters tucked along the edge of a tiny Boston balcony. My harvests were at best unremarkable but enough to sow the love for gardening in me to last a lifetime. While nurturing my tiny garden, I would daydream about a bigger space to grow more food. In 2014, my dream came true when our family moved to Miami, FL. I now garden on a 0.18 acre lot. Delectable Day is a space I carved out to dedicate to the things I love outside of my dietetic profession and role as wife and mother. One of the things I love most is gardening. I am not a garden expert. Everything I learned, I did it by scouring google academy, reading all the gardening books I can get my hands on and following all that up with lots of trials and errors in our garden.
