Growing up there was always a place to play, explore and grow. Nature was an essential part of that process and enjoyment. Growing up in a city like Atlanta, Ga with parents that grew up in small towns such as Jasper Alabama and Tuscalloosa Alabama appreciating nature and everything that it had to offer was instilled at a very young age. During the summer I would stay in Alabama (Both Parts) with the Grandparents and in Jasper I would help my grandmother pick grapes, berries, tomatoes, okra, squash etc. out of her garden and it was therapy. Therapy that I didn't even know I needed. We would pick and then we would cook and have family time, something that I didn't get at home very often because my Parents worked a lot. Granny was a home ec teacher so the garden, and the kitchen was her sanctuary. Mysteriously my other grandmother enjoyed the same hobbies and her husband was a hunter. So being at their house was double trouble. A lot of fun to say the least.
Here at Yopi we just want to spread that love and enjoyment with the community, and families around the globe. As the world grows, the way we consume things grows and the time that we get to spend with our family lessens. We'd like to bring that feeling back to the home, the good old fashion way one garden at a time. Gardening is Therapeutic, Good for the Heart and Good for the Soul.
We believe together we can be the change we'd like to see in the world and for the future.
Our Mission is to bring families and communities back together through gardening. We've seen the positive effect it can have first hand and we want to do our part.
Our Vision is to one day see families close again, spending quality time with each other over a nice cooked meal prepared from their very own garden.
