Learn How to Start Growing

No Green Thumb Necessary

You can grow fresh, delicious produce no matter your experience level or location. Here you’ll find all the resources necessary to get started growing indoors or outdoors, individually or in a group. Read on to find out about the amazing impact that simple acts—like sharing food—can have on friends, neighbors, and communities.

Outdoor Gardening

Outdoor gardening is a great way to grow delicious produce to share with family, friends, and neighbors. It’s also an excellent way to get some exercise, spend time outdoors, and beautify your neighborhood. Here, you can learn everything you need to know to get started with outdoor gardening.

Indoor Gardening

City dwellers know that fresh produce and outdoor space can be hard to come by. Fortunately, you can still grow fruits and vegetables indoors! Learn everything you need to know about indoor lighting, plant selection, soil choice, and more in our guides.

Improving your Gardening

Everyone can become a successful gardener—after all, that’s a large part of the appeal! But, like anything else, gardening is a skill which improves through practice and exploration. Here, we focus on three methods that will help you become an even better gardener.

Community Gardening

Starting or joining a community garden is great for your health and happiness. It’s also straightforward, particularly when you have roadmaps explaining the process. In this section, we’ll explore how to join, organize, or spread the word about a community garden.

Powerful Community Impacts

Now more than ever, we’re realizing the importance of togetherness. Getting involved in a gardening community—or getting your community involved in gardening—isn’t just an opportunity to enjoy delicious produce. It’s also an opportunity to care for, educate, and appreciate one another. Read about gardening's amazing community impacts here.

Our Story

Around 10 years ago, we first heard about Incredible Edible, a global movement creating vibrant communities through the power of growing and sharing produce. Fast forward to today, with many confined to their homes and unable to get access to healthy food, this idea seemed more relevant to us than ever.

That’s why the teams at Temboo, Incredible Edible, and Mutualism have come together to lend our voices to the social growing message. Our hope is that our combined communities can play a small part in replicating the success of the original movement through a vibrant, sustainable network of growers and sharers.
