About

HELLO & WELCOME!  

Our names are Mary and Tom, and we are passionate gardeners, eco-thusiasts, and cancer survivors. We launched our company in November 2018, based on Mary’s frustration of not being able to find quality garden gloves that didn’t immediately blow out in the fingertips and protect her hands from splinters and thorns. Time in the garden is supposed to provide therapy not utter frustration from trashed fingernails, dirty hands/nails, and gloves that SUCK! Based on this repeated experience and seeking not to be declared insane by doing it over and over, we decided to leverage our financial and product creation backgrounds and create a women’s garden glove company called Garden like a Girl!

WE BELIEVE:

Garden = Therapy

Sustainability is Paramount!

Always Give Back!


 OUR TEAM 

 THE PROBLEM

We started by conducting many focus groups and surveying hundreds of active female gardeners. 

What We Found 

*Most said gloves don’t protect their fingernails or provide wrist support.

THE SOLUTION

Garden Time, Northwest's local garden show

 GARDEN GARB APPAREL 

Garden Garb apparel was created to help build our Brand awareness and showcase our logo. Made from recycled plastic bottles, natural and sustainable materials, it’s super soft and feels Yummy on! We take sustainability all the way to our hang tags, which we call BLOOMERS. Made from recycled paper, imbedded with non-invasive wildflower seeds, you plant them and they BLOOM into beautiful flowers! 

SUMMARY

Your support will help push us up to the next level and handle the costs of glove inventory, production costs and packaging. We are super excited about this next phase as the response at local garden shows to our glove prototypes, our cool logo, and our ecofriendly focus has been phenomenal!   

Garden like a Girl started with the simple idea of creating the perfect women's gardening glove and making hands happy. We’re making great strides and we’re hopeful you’ll join us. 

Once our project is fully funded, we will contact you to confirm the details of your reward. 

Here’s to Diggin’ Deep!
