Happy To Be bACK

Happy to be bACK on ACK (aka Nantucket)!

In 2018, the first year of our children's book, "You Are a Gardener®," we captured a photo of Gardener Anna & Gardener Aidan holding our book in front of Mister Rogers' Nantucket home. Little did we realize then that this simple act would evolve into an annual family tradition, symbolizing the remarkable growth of our platform and the personal growth of Anna and Aidan. Before this tradition began, we used to pass by the Crooked House, the summer residence in Madaket on Nantucket, envisioning Fred and Joanne Rogers drawing inspiration from their serene retreat and the scenic Madaket Harbor. Fred Rogers' significant impact on children, families, and educators continues to ripple through our culture today, and continues to grow stronger with every kindhearted 'gardener' worldwide.

Our little family tradition serves as a constant inspiration for us, motivating us to continue to nurture and sow seeds of empowerment among ‘gardeners’ of all generations. By providing a universal vocabulary, mindset, and healthy ‘gardening tools’ , we aim to help gardeners of all ages maintain a sense of confidence, creativity, and a calm perspective, in efforts to cultivate the seeds for positive change.

Two years ago we discovered a Mister Rogers inspired Little Free Library on our way to Madaket to take our annual photo. Stopping by this Little Free Library® after we take our picture in front of the Crooked House has also become a new family tradition!
