These handmade red cedar planters were designed by an award-winning organic farming expert and advocate based in Georgia with over two decades of experience in starting farms and gardens in schools, residential neighborhoods, community centers and affordable housing developments all over the nation. Compact in space but deep enough for shallow to medium rooted vegetables, the planter boxes are ideal for kitchen gardens, to be filled with herbs, lettuces, and other edible plants, or to expand or start your patio or backyard gardening. With their elevated legs, finicky plants could also benefit from the protection of these raised bed planters. The planters are handmade in Atlanta, Georgia from sustainably harvested, FSC certified Western Red Cedar.

Production & Design

As a freshman in college, Daron Joffe (aka Farmer D) suddenly looked at his lunch and wondered: where do all of these ingredients come from? Since that day, he has worked to foster and deepen the relationship between people and the food they eat. To do this, he works with a small team of horticulturalists, farmers and designers, as well as a community outreach manager, to create products and programs that promote small organic gardens and farms and the direct harvesting of food.  

In 1998, while still in school, Joffe won the Rookie Biodynamic Farmer of the Year Award from the American Biodynamic Association for his involvement in setting up farms in schools, residential neighborhoods and community centers. Today, he continues this work on an even larger scale, aiding in the setup of a 30-acre sustainable affordable housing development in Savannah, Georgia. Joffe also works with large national chain retailers to develop compost systems and reduce waste.
