Founded in Vancouver in 2012 by entrepreneur Kent Houston, Let’s Patch was fuelled by the idea that anyone could grow food, anywhere. Kent wanted to help people grow good food not only because it was healthy, but because it could help improve and propel communities to be a viable solution for environmental challenges. After experimenting with prototypes, he discovered how much food could actually be grown on our windowsills and what benefits small actions could have. So, he tried to figure out ways to make things easy, friendly, and a little nicer looking. Kent has also infused social enterprise into each planter by using proceeds from every sale to support community-based volunteer organizations committed to food education for youth, such as Growing Chefs!
