Based in Bloomington, Indiana, the socially-responsible company began with the aim of creating innovative, collaborative and affordable gardening and food sustainability. After seeing a lecture about food crisis and security by Will Allen from Growing Power, founder Colin Cudmore was inspired to begin working on a solution.
