About Epic Gardening
Epic Gardening has a simple but audacious mission: teach the world to grow.
Originally started as a hobby by founder Kevin Espiritu in 2013, Epic Gardening has since become the world’s most followed gardening brand. As a true leader in gardening education and entertainment, we've built a powerful community with tens of millions of aspiring gardeners across 100 countries.
Quality: Our Guiding Principle
After years of creating gardening content, we launched our online store in 2019 and now offer a collection of premium garden products that we genuinely use, love, and recommend.
In the world of gardening products, there are a TON of cheaply-made, poorly-designed, or copycat products. We should know - we've tried nearly all of them!
These products will last you a season or two and then break down, wasting your precious 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.
Who's Behind 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 mysaving grace,showing me a better way to engage with the world than wasting dozens of hours a week playing video games and feeling depressed and 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 and Grow Bag Gardening, and been on a multitude of podcasts, TV programs, and magazines for my work in urban gardening.
I started seriously gardening during the pandemic as a way to relax and find purpose. In the process, I discovered that everything from the garden tastes so delicious and vibrant which opened a world of flavor that couldn’t be found anywhere else! This revelation gave me purpose and I want to bring the joy and delicious flavors of home gardening to as many people as possible. By teaching people the how and why behind gardening practices I hope to empower others to discover what I did — flavor!
I garden using organic inputs combined with a low till philosophy in order to build healthy soil. I like to show DIY projects around the garden that are accessible to anyone who watches. Throughout the process, I am always experimenting with new tools and practices to find the best methods and equipment for the home gardener!
As a fifth generation farmer, I have always had a connection to the soil--but it wasn't until my best friend passed away in 2017 that I felt the desire to get my hands in the earth and heal through nature. This path led me to develop a style of gardening that coexists with nature rather than controlling it: relying on regenerative practices such as cover cropping, grazing, and employing native plants, I came up with a method that not only allows my garden to thrive but also supports my ecosystem and pollinators while providing habitat. I garden without the use of peat, any pesticides (including "organic" pesticides), or fertilizers--we emphasize soil and ecosystem building the way nature would.
Our 2-acre flower farm focuses on education and we have hosted nearly 1000 participants on the farm for classes, bringing our community together and closer to nature. Over time, I am also adjusting and scaling my practices to apply them to our 200-acre farm in Southern Minnesota--I have so much learning and experimenting to come, which is my favorite part of gardening!
