Who's Behind Epic Gardening?

Kevin Espiritu of Epic Gardening

Hi there - I'm Kevin Espiritu. I began gardening in 2010 in my early 20s, when I was feeling lost and disconnected from the natural world.

Gardening became my saving grace, showing me a better way to engage with the world than wasting dozens of hours a week playing video games and feeling depressed quite frankly, lonely.

Realizing the tremendous joy gardening brought me, I began sharing my journey online. Years later, Epic Gardening is now a multi-platform gardening education and products company with the mission to help 100,000,00+ people grow their own food.

I have been featured as a Timberland "Hero for Nature", written two best-selling gardening books, Field Guide to Urban Gardening: How to Grow Plants, No Matter Where You Live and Grow Bag Gardening: The Revolutionary Way to Grow Bountiful Vegetables, Herbs, Fruits, and Flowers in Lightweight, Eco-friendly Fabric Pots, and been on a multitude of podcasts, TV programs, and magazines for my work in urban gardening.

I currently reside in San Diego, California on my Epic Homestead.

Quality: Our Guiding Principle

In the world of gardening products, there are a TON of cheaply-made, poorly-designed, or copycat products. I should know - I've tried nearly all of them.

These products will last you a season or two and then break down, wasting your money and creating more trash for the landfill.

At Epic Gardening, we take a different approach.

Every product we stock in our store is hand-selected after detailed testing, research, and seasons worth of "in-the-garden" growing experience.

In short, if it doesn't stand up to our level of quality, we do not carry it in our store...plain and simple.
