The story of Seeding Square began about 5 years ago. My husband and I were frustrated new gardeners looking for a tool to help simplify the process of planting and caring for a vegetable garden. As children we both had the opportunity to grow up with a family veggie patch and wanted the same for our own kids. After learning there was no such tool available, we went surfing the web for ideas. We loved the high-density spacing approach of Square Foot Gardening, but laying down square foot grids over our entire garden didn’t suit the setup we had.
So spacing templates were made, seeds were planted and the sprouts came up in perfect formation with almost no weeds in sight. Our perfect garden was noticed and the templates were shared. The demand was there from our inner circle, so crowdfunding was the next logical step. 5 years and many steps later, we now have over 17,000 units sold and our color-coded seed spacer is changing the way people grow food at home…even little-green thumbs love it!
