The Elephant Gardens project, known as “Buddy Buckets,” is a growing method that combines the concept of container gardening with companion planting. “Buddy Buckets” (TM) and his “Veg Crew” (TM) have been personified into actual characters who represent various vegetable and herb families.

The Health and Beauty Bodega is another way in which The Elephant Gardens is encouraging community residents to adopt healthier lifestyles. Our goal is to demonstrate to our customers that outward beauty is directly impacted by the “inward” processes of digestion -in other words, eating well helps you feel good and look good!

The Elephant Gardens began offering “box deals,” wherein customers, for a pre-set price, could purchase pre-packaged fruits and vegetables, most of which were grown by The Elephant Gardens, with a smaller portion grown by some of our community partners or sourced locally. This approach was initiated to help us move large quantities of harvested produce that might otherwise go bad if we waited to sell at our scheduled market. These box deals were a huge success, as customers seemed to like the idea of box deals.
