It may be an understatement to say that we live in uncertain times. Any doubt of this fact was erased with the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. Quarantines, social distancing, masks, mass layoffs, and empty grocery store shelves were new experiences for nearly every American.…
I am very proud to share with you that Business Intelligence Group has awarded Gardyn the Sustainability Product of the Year award for 2020. Gardyn is dedicated to introducing revolutionary technology that reimagines how we provide access to healthy food, grown locally, that minimizes impact on the environment.
Gardyn is a mission-driven organization and each quarter we plan to donate 1% of our revenue to charities that are making a difference. Gardyn just started up in early 2020 and our first donation was made to World Central Kitchen (WCK). Founded by renowned chef José Andrés, the organization provides "A Hot Plate of Food When it's Needed Most."

It is easy to see the day-to-day impact of social distancing and sheltering-in-place. However, there are similarly important changes taking place in the way people think about the future. They are rethinking whether things they once took for granted will always be available. Access to the local grocery store is suddenly on that list. We have heard from a number of new Gardyners that this was a motivation for them to start growing their own fresh produce at home.
