Grow an Epic Career

At Epic Gardening, we’re always looking for talented teammates with a passion to effect change and help further our mission: teach the world to grow.

Who are we and what do we do?

Epic Gardening was started because I wanted an outlet to reconnect to nature, but couldn’t find modern, practical guides to growing plants. I didn’t grow up as a gardener, and I didn’t want to scour through old university PDFs and ancient tomes to find growing advice…but it seemed that’s where all of the good information was.

As I fell more and more in love with gardening, I began to document my growing journey, initially on a blog, then a YouTube channel, then a podcast, with social media accounts following shortly thereafter.

As I continued to share my gardening adventures, I realized: this is a critical skill set that most of us on Earth have no idea how to do well.

Today, millions of people from every country on Earth have learned to grow their own food, care for houseplants, and prevent their plants from dying due to the educational content Epic Gardening publishes.

On top of that, we now offer best-in-class gardening products designed to last, perform, and look gorgeous in your garden.

Our mission is to teach the world to grow. We hope you’ll join us.

Why our work matters

The way our society and world at large is trending is unsustainable. We’ve evolved culturally and societally much faster than our biology. The activities and habits that kept us healthy and happy in ancient times still do, and yet few of us have any clue how to perform them.

We don’t just provide education: we seek to empower the everyday person with the knowledge and ability to produce their own food, care for plants and reconnect with nature.

Not in an esoteric sense, either – we find that when someone learns how to grow plants, that knowledge awakens a deeper passion for nature within them and ultimately deeper respect for the planet we live on.

Gardening allows us to reclaim some of that primal activity that we as humans find so fulfilling, but it also strengthens the ties to our local communities and neighbors. It improves our mental health – we’ve received many messages to date from members of the Epic Gardening community expressing that learning to grow food got them out of a depression. Some have even written us saying that learning to garden quite literally saved them from committing suicide.

The time we invest in gardening pays us back in more ways than we can imagine – for ourselves, for our friends and family, and for the world itself.

That is why our work matters.
