wilted lettuce is gross

While dining in a restaurant on the West coast, Jesse was underwhelmed by the quality of produce served. Salads are supposed to be nutritious, colourful, and fresh, not quite the salad received. Paying more for a sub-par product is just compost.

Jesse explored the West coast; greeting farmers, market owners and grocery store operators only to discover the long adventure produce endured to reach it's consumption destination. With experience in modifying a shipping container into a produce growing box, Jesse jumped on the unique opportunity. Seeing a business idea, the decision was made to pursue it. 

that grew into an idea

Shipping containers and fresh produce are not words that typically go together. However, when combined, amazing things can happen. With the dream of enriching the lives of others, Botany Box 

and botany box was born

Research was done, creation second, and the first unit produced to hit the market with one goal in mind; selling to like-minded customers who desire fresh fruits, vegetables, and foliage, created in optimal, organic growing conditions, 365 days of the year. Here's to a lifetime of tasteful salads.
