Our Promise To You

All Urban Leaf products come with a Green Thumb Guarantee, which means that if you can’t get them to grow or are not satisfied with the results we will refund or replace them for free. We do this not because we think our products are perfect. They’re not. Rather, we do this because we recognize that gardening is a voyage and not a destination, and if you’re completely new to it then the truth is that there’s a bunch of things that could go wrong. But there is so much to be gained from fixing our food system and having you experience the magic of gardening that we don’t want an initial setback to deter you. Not only are we willing to replace your product for free, but we will also happily offer 1-on-1 coaching and support to make your next attempt a more successful one.

Let’s Talk

How we began

  • Determined to build something that would make his future grandchildren proud, Nate left the finance industry in 2015 and began dreaming up the idea for Urban Leaf. When he’s not getting to know Urban Leaf customers and ensuring they have a great experience, Nate’s in the kitchen. A true foodie, Nate has been cooking for most of his life. The first dish he ever learned how to cook was spaghetti bolognese at age 9, and he’s taken cooking classes all over the world, even earning a Certificate of Culinary Arts in Toronto. Thai and Vietnamese are his favorite culinary regions, and he once spent a month exploring the Central Highlands of Vietnam by motorbike in search of the perfect bowl of Banh Hoi (it’s all about the fresh herbs!!)

  • Rob was raised on a wood farm in southeastern Massachusetts. Since moving to NYC, he has made it his mission to make the city a bit greener. His Ph.D. dissertation focused on Vegetated Infrastructure, which means he’s an expert in incorporating plants into built environments. Rob is in charge of dreaming up new products for Urban Leaf and refining our tools to make indoor gardening as simple as possible. But he’s really known for his “Upper Westo Pesto” (fortunately, he’s always got a good supply of fresh basil on hand.)

The Importance Of Gardening

We believe that finding ways to grow food in urban environments solves a huge number of problems facing people and the planet. Growing your own food shortens supply chains by putting fewer miles between food and eaters, decreases waste through less packaging, and produces food with a higher nutritional density. However, growing food in urban environments is not without its challenges either. As New Yorkers living in 600 square foot apartments, we know these challenges firsthand. There is a lack of time, space, and know how. By making growing food at home fun, easy, and affordable we are overcoming these obstacles.

If you’re interested, you can read more about how founders Nate and Rob got started and why we are so passionate about Urban Farming.
