Grandpa Gardener (also referred to as grandpa,gardener) is a fictional character based on the experiences of a real grandpa and gardener. He was inspired by gardening with his granddaughter and her Kindergarten class to create garden-based experiences filled with charming characters who come to life.  He observed that the simple act of planting a seed, tending it and watching it grow is a miraculous experience for children on multiple levels.  

As a garden volunteer, he had the wonderful opportunity to work with hundreds of children in public and private schools and organizations. He found that the children who gardened greatly improved their reading, writing, and comprehension skills in a fun, safe, and entertaining way.  As a result, he and his wife established Grandpa Gardener, Inc. in 2006 as a company with a cause - Growing Gardens. Growing Children.  Our primary vision is to "Open Minds Through Gardening" by providing children everywhere with Garden-Based Learning books, workshop experiences, and products.
