About this week's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Jennifer Pratt

#263: How to Make Square Foot Gardening Easier Using Jennifer Pratt’s Invention, the Seeding Square New to gardening, and without a tool to help simplify the planting process, Jen and her husband invented something that teaches kids (and parents) how to easily plant a vegetable garden. Before donning her inventor's cap, Jen was a school teacher and with that experience she noticed there was a disconnect in kids regarding a basic understanding of where food comes from. She's working to help simplify vegetable gardening for all ages and experience levels, while also bringing fresh veggies to dinner tables across North America.

Jennifer's company is based out of Surrey, BC CANADA. Her goal was to make the process of planting a garden simple. She wanted to offer a tool that made gardening accessible to new gardeners, seasoned gardeners, seniors and kids. In the process she found that optimizing space so efficiently gets users up to 2 - 5 times the harvest, and because the space is so efficiently used, there is almost no room for weeds!
