Grower's Tools is operated by Botan Anderson and Karen Plante. Together we have decades of gardening and farming experience. Botan grew up on a horse farm and became interested in Natural Farming in the early 1980's. In 2000 he started Mystic Prairie Eco-Farm. In 2008 he started One Scythe Revolution. Karen comes from a family of avid gardeners, and has been been gardening since 2000, specializing in medicinal herbs and flowers, and growing vegetables in intensive raised beds.
We believe that growing your own organic food on a hand-tool scale, is extremely beneficial for people and the planet. Whether it is in community gardens, rooftop gardens, suburban backyard and even front yard gardens, or on small homesteads and farms; composting and making biochar, building the soil and soil organisms, growing chemical-free flowers for pollinators, planting food savannas and forests, pasturing livestock, .. all together, helps us collectively move towards the ecological civilization we need to become.
Your satisfaction is our priority and we strive to provide a service we are proud of. We carry some of the finest and practical, traditional gardening hand-tools from around the world.
We strive to be in constant communication with our customers. If you have questions or special requests, just drop us a line. We look forward to hearing from you.
