"We aim to have an inviting space, heavily rooted in creating a sense of community."
"We seek out interesting materials, handcrafted and often locally made goods."
"Well, it's true... We want to equip people with the knowledge to grow."

Deep within the Junction Triangle neighborhood, there's an oasis of lush green life inside the doors of Urban Gardener. Their work is to spread the urban forest far out beyond their doors. There's a real love and care here. It's not just about schilling out pretty plants, it's about cultivating a life surrounded by beauty. Not only do they provide the plants, but also the tools to grow a sustainable life through workshops and knowledge. When you buy a plant from here, it's not a one way transaction, but one that returns ten fold with growth, health and the rich network of rooted community.
