About Us

We're a company of plant nerds. We think plants are the future and we want to help people everywhere enjoy the benefits of growing their own organic food at home - no matter what your abilities, space, or budget.

Our mission is to make gardening easy for everyone by making it affordable and accessible. And our vision? To create an urban garden revolution that will change the way our cities grow food in the future!

Plant3r was founded on a love for all things green, but most importantly, on a deep respect for nature's ability to provide nourishment for us all.


I was having tea late at night with my friend who was a guard at the Turkish embassy at the time and he happened to ask why so few people garden in the DC area despite the fact that the soil there was better than the best soil in Turkey. I gave him the usual answers one might have to a question like that. Most people are too busy, the process is complicated, not enough space to plant. But it didn't satisfy me and I was haunted by the question to this day. I decided to do something about it and started working on the planting tool a few years later.
