My name is Jiri, and I’m one of the co-creators of Planted Well.
Our mission is simple, we want to improve the life of at least 1 million people.
A close friend once told me: ‘becoming a millionaire is not related to money, but to touch and improve the lives of a million people‘, and that is exactly what we set out to do with Planted Well.
How, you ask? By taking you on our humble journey of growing healthy plants and raising animals we love, with love.
But why? Because it is important, now more than ever, to know how to grow your own food and start to understand where your food is coming from.
Not only will you feel mentally and physically better by doing so, but we also improve our planet along the way, for generations to come.
The seeds of change start with you.
Now, before I start wasting (and we all hate waste!) your time on something that might not be for you, does this resonate with your goals and personality?
- You hate letting food go to waste
- You want to stop ruining your plants
- You want to start growing your own food
- You want to learn creative gardening techniques
- You love animals and watching them is your happy place
- Being outside in nature is where you truly flourish and grow
If you tick one of these boxes, I think we have lots in common and I’m convinced we can learn a lot from each other.
Here’s what you can expect to learn
Planted Well is packed with nutritious and delicious ideas, inspiration, resources, tools & tips to help you grow – whether that is your plants, animals, or you personally.
You’ll find real tips based on real failures and experiences.
Just like you, I’m still in the never-ending learning process myself.
I’m in no-way a walking garden encyclopedia but I’m right here with you in the trenches.
There are no garden mistakes, only experiments.
With my guidance, I hope to spark your dreams of a more sustainable lifestyle.
A life filled with your own produce, bringing you back to your roots, while making the world a little bit better.
Think of us, the creators at Planted Well, as your new mentors and friends, that’ll help you grow to new heights, one seedling at a time.
Our passion is sharing what we know with people just like you.
Essential life skills that everyone should be learning, and there’s a certain excitement to being more self-sufficient and better understand the world we live in and consume.
It all starts with the seeds being Planted Well.
One thing is guaranteed, once you start taking action and plant your first seeds well, there is no going back and true magic will start happening.
