Can Do Attitude

Perfect for the urban farmers or green thumbs who are short on space, this all-in-one set contains everything you need to grow your own organic herbs right at home. Looking for a fast and fool-proof medium for growing herbs, designers Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez teamed up with scientists from UC Berkeley. Through their research, they discovered biochar, a composite of the charred remnants of organic agricultural waste that was first utilized by Amazonian tribes centuries ago. The ancient medium has the ability to retain moisture to prevent over-watering issues, it also aerates the soil for quick root growth and fosters microbial activity in the soil, maximizing nutrient absorption.

To use, simply pop open the recycled can, add water, and place it in a sunny spot. Within a few weeks your homegrown herbs will be ready to harvest and enjoy in your favorite dishes.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Garden in a Can - Set of 4:

    I am far from a green thumb. I dream of having my own herb garden, but I know I lack the skill. However, I do also love a good fresh herb while I'm cooking. It truly makes a big difference. These little cans were so easy to get started. Open, plant, water, wait. Within a week, I've got fresh basil and cilantro right on my kitchen windowsill, and I put forth the least amount of effort possible! Plus the upkeep is nothing but adding a little more water! This was a perfect gift for me, someone who enjoys cooking, but is truly awful at planting and keeping plants thriving.

      I was a bit disappointed. I guess I didn't look close enough, but when it said set of 4, I thought four herbs, not 2 of basil and 2 of cilantro. I love them, but was sad it was just two varieties.

            I try to purchase unusual gifts and this "garden in a can" was perfect for a gourmet cook that uses herbs and prefers the ones that are home grown. I was lauded for even knowing the Uncommon Goods company existed since I am a senior citizen and considered "old fashioned"!!!!

              I put a ribbon around each can and placed one at each dinner guests' place setting. I had a southern, family style dinner for ten guests. I told them I wanted to stay in touch with my southern roots and hoped these little gifts would remind them o stay in touch with their roots. My guests were delighted with the novel, useful gift.
