Our son wrote a report in elementary school and listed “growing food in our backyard” as one of the things he does to make the world a better place. Indeed!”– Jennifer & Tony, Hillsboro
Verdura Culinary Gardens was founded in Portland, Oregon by husband and wife team Larry and Caroline Lewis, lifelong gardeners and cooks looking to find a way to help people grow more of their own food.
For five years, the Verdura team built raised bed gardens for Portland area clients in their front, back and side yards, on decks and rooftops, driveways and places of business. Since then, the company has moved exclusively into selling downloadable garden plans. We have turned the local business over to our colleagues at Independence Gardens, who continue to install Verdura-style products at home and businesses, and to provide coaching and maintenance services in the Portland area.
At Verdura we embrace sustainability and support healthier and greener lifestyles for ourselves and our clients. We focus on maintaining the highest quality in all levels of our business, from our unique garden designs to offering culinary advice to our clients. We are committed to:
- Helping reconnect you to your food supply by growing your own organic vegetables and herbs.
- Exceptional attention to detail in our products.
- Encouraging customers to use organic practices and to grow locally adapted heirloom varieties.
- Speccing the highest quality building materials in our plans.
