plantspeople offers a unique community learning model based on the belief that we all have the ability and ancestral knowledge of caring for and using plants. this intuition paired with inspiration goes a long way in the crafting process. together these beliefs matched with the talented community of artists and homesteaders in the bay area is enough to fuel our group learning workshops, where together everyone is equal and learning is reinforced through a ritual of hands on work in the garden.

the plantspeople garden is a place where everyone is welcome. all designed by hand and with the intention of inspiring others learn how to identify and grow plants. we are constantly motivated by the disturbing fact that the average american teenager can recognize 1000 corporate logos by the time they go to college, but not even 5 plants in their neighborhood.
