 Simple. Sustainable. Organic.

Growing your own fresh, organic food at home doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. It also shouldn't take up a ton of space. Mason Jar Garden planters are an easy way to grow tasty, nutritious herbs and vegetables in your own home.

How Mason Jar Gardens Work

Every Mason Jar Garden planter is hand-assembled using components that are made in America and contains certified organic seeds and soils that are sourced from local farms. 

Each Mason Jar Garden planter comes with the following:

  • 16oz mason jar
  • Drainage stones
  • Proprietary blend of organic soil and fertilizer
  • Your choice of certified organic seeds

For best results, you should place your Mason Jar Garden planter near sunlight (windowsills are best) and water two or three times per week (with approximately 1oz of per watering).  We'll provide detailed instructions with each order.

Here are the available seeds:

(We'll expand the offering as we reach stretch goals)

  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Chive
  • Dill
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Peppermint
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Spearmint
  • Thyme

Pledge of Quality

As a stay-at-home mom, I am passionate about teaching my children the importance of a wholesome, well-rounded diet.  Most of the meals we eat are home-cooked using organic ingredients from our garden.  During the winter months, I've found that growing herbs and vegetables in mason jars on my windowsills is an easy way to provide nutritious, delicious meals for my family.

I take great pride in my work and would not feel comfortable making a product for you that I would not use myself.  For this reason, all of the ingredients I use are certified organic and sourced from local farmers; all of my products are hand-assembled so that I can ensure the highest level of quality.

I understand if you cannot contribute monetarily.  I would sincerely appreciate if you helped spread the word about the project by sharing it with your friends on Facebook.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Use of Funds

Sourcing

If successfully funded, we'll be able to negotiate better terms with our suppliers, which means we'll be able to provide our backers with the highest quality ingredients.

Packaging

Part of the proceeds will be used to design new packaging and instructional materials for backers and future customers.

Risks and challenges

Limits to available shipping locations:
I can only ship organic seeds within the United States and will be unable to fulfill orders for international backers.

Fulfillment and Shipping:
I've tried to be realistic in my estimates for delivery. Thankfully, I've got a great group of friends and family who will help me ensure that every order is delivered in a timely manner.

Sourcing Materials:
I have a longstanding relationship with each of my suppliers and do not anticipate delays of any kind for any volume.
