Our mission is to bring you the joy of saying, "I Grew That!"
We believe everyone—parent, chef, urbanite, and gardening rookie—should experience the fun of growing their own garden. So we've made it easy, fun, and accessible with our personalized container gardens, curated and customized for each customer, ensuring they have a successful growing experience. It's our mission to change the way people view gardening by combining technology and custom ingredients with the personal touch of seasoned Grow Pro experts. The Gardenuity experience is not merely custom and curated - it's personalized to you. We are here to help you save time, grow great gardens, and experience the thrill of saying, "I grew that!"
It’s no secret we’re all about growth. Co-founders, Donna Letier and Julie Eggers created Gardenuity to bring ingenuity and freshness to the gardening industry and experience. "We're proud to work with a passionate team of Grow Pro partners, marketers, farmers, horticulturists, and engineers across the U.S. They are smart, motivated and bring the growing experience to life for customers across the country."

Julie is a co-founder and COO. Essentially, she connects the dots and oversees business operations.
Gardenuity co-founders Donna Letier and Julie Eggers' story began with the desire to bring ingenuity to the entire growing experience. Discovering, researching, sourcing, and building a really healthy container garden takes time that most people don't have. So what happens? People are reluctant to give gardening a try.
Gardenuity (Gardening meets Ingenuity) is changing the narrative for home gardening. Inviting people to grow their own garden of fresh flavors - from beets, lettuce, garlic and tomatoes to herbs - Gardenuity is bringing successful gardening experiences to men and women coast to coast.
