5 Ways Gardyn Makes a Great Gift

Sure it’s glowing with fresh produce and smart as a whip, but there’s a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to gifting Gardyn. When you give a loved one a Gardyn, you’re giving something meaningful, beautiful, and good for our future.

Gifts for the holidays

1. It Brings People Together

One of the best things about food is its ability to bring people together. Friends, family, and strangers from all walks of life have laughed, learned, and made memories around food. Having a living, growing Gardyn invites curious guests to investigate. Let them pluck a strawberry and take a juicy bite right then and there. Sharing the different plants and how they grow is one of the joys of owning a Gardyn. They’ll love harvesting, cooking, and sitting down to enjoy beautiful dishes together.

2. It Reminds You What Food Is All About

We don’t get as many opportunities as we once did to enjoy real, nutritious food. With delicious, flavor-forward Gardyn produce around, inspiration never wanes. Gardyners delight in rediscovering ingredients they thought they knew. Rich flavors, tender textures, and vibrant color make cooking and eating an experience. Your loved ones will enjoy basking in the health, beauty, and pleasure that comes with good food.

3. It Helps The Planet

Give not only a lovely gift in and of itself, but one that helps reduce our impact on the planet. Store-bought food has a negative impact on CO2 emissions, water consumption, and nutrition. Gardyn provides you with 8-10 pounds of produce per month with zero environmental impact.  You can also leave town without a second thought (thank you vacation mode!). Because you harvest as needed, there’s no need for things to rot in the crisper drawer. You’ll feel great giving something good for the planet, and they for receiving it.

4. It’s The Gift That (Literally) Keeps on Giving

With new seeds, varieties, and flowers coming out each month they won’t get bored. Because it becomes a daily staple, you’re also giving an easy opportunity for a healthy habit to form. Every time they conveniently snip a few sprigs or pluck a handful of tomatoes, they’ll be glad to have something useful, and fun. Feeling good in one department leads to changes in other areas. You’ll love watching healthy habits form, and they’ll love you for getting them started.

5. It Reconnects You to Nature

Nothing gives a greater appreciation for food than growing it yourself. Watching a tiny seed turn into a luscious head of Romaine or a juicy tangle of cherry tomatoes is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Witnessing the changes and tuning into nature grounds you and opens your eyes to small beauties often overlooked. Things begin popping up, on walks. A Dandelion in the sidewalk. A bird’s nest in a tree. It’s a reminder that nature is everywhere (including in us), and it’s absolutely incredible to watch.

When we stop to self-reflect and support our bodies with wholesome, nutritious food and time outside, we can shape our lives in a happy, healthy way.

If you asked Sophie Banton about gardening three years ago, she would have told you she’d never planted a single seed. Three years later her house is brimming with colorful fruits, vegetables, and flowers, and there’s no going back. When the pandemic hit, Sophie and her daughter Ari found themselves spending a lot more time indoors. So she sat down to think about what could brighten their space. Her first thought- plants. And not just houseplants, fruits and vegetables you can eat.

A Look Back at 2021

A Lot Happened in 2021. Nasa landed a rover on Mars (again!), the climate change conference took place in Glasgow, and pictures of a chilly Bernie Sanders with giant mittens went viral. A lot happened at Gardyn too. We started the year with one Gardyn, a small team, and big dreams for the year ahead. Our community expanded to 11,200 Gardyners with memberships, sharing recipes, stories, plants they’ve grown, tales of their pets, children, and meals together. Small acts of care added beauty and intentionality throughout the day and changed the way we thought about time.
