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 has been great to see so many product reviewers and media organically discover Gardyn over the past two months. First to find us was Thrillist in their roundup of indoor gardening solutions back in March.
It will be obvious to anyone that adding flowers to your Gardyn will add even more beauty to the lively colors already present from the fruits and vegetables. Some Gardyners are considering a second Gardyn just as a flower showpiece. However, I want to point out that the flowers are not just for your Gardyn.
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.
