Between 15 and 20 million people in the US alone have tried and failed at gardening, due to many factors, including: misleading and overwhelming information, too many seeds, maladapted cultivars, problems in design and lay out, misunderstanding their growing site conditions, little to no communty support, a failure to design for needs and integration into lifestyle, etc. Some pay upwards of $1,000 and are left with the idea they have failed, while giving up a basic right to feed themselves.


EcologicalUnit is growing gardeners with a novice-accessible global repository, providing bio-regional ecologically based site-specific planting patterns, seed shares and information, with a regional and online expert gardener network for support.

Long-Term Impact

Food insecurity can be reduced through each person growing some food. By removing the trial and error, reducing price, linking growers, teaching, making the gardens ecologically site-centered and using plants that grow well, people feed themselves.
