Discover the magic of gardening
We all started from a tiny seed.
The Mr. Stacky ‘Tiny Seeds’ gardening initiative supports childcare centers to advocate the magic of gardening, social responsibility and environmental contentedness for young children.
Using Mr Stacky Tower Gardens, we provide an interactive planting sessions where children play a hands on role in creating a colorful, unique and awe inspiring vertical garden display which is then used by the childcare center for daily fresh food and health education.
According to the latest Australian Bureau of statistics, the average farmer is 56 years old with incidence of young farmers steadily declining. We want to encourage new ways of thinking about farming to enable trends in automated urban food production.
Our aim is to help promote environmental responsibility, cooperation, creativity, healthy lifestyle and above all else, a love of gardening & fresh veggies for young children!
We completely solve the issues of over or under watering your plants by setting up timed & simple to use automated vertical garden.
The gardens are free standing, so there is no drilling or infrastructure needed.
We take care of the set-up & run an interactive hands on planting session with the children and staff.
We provide full maintenance and operational training so your daycare center can have a constant supply of fresh commercial quality vegetables
We help you set up a crowd funding campaign utilizing donations to fund the entire initiative!

“After participating in the establishment of the gardens, we have witnessed the children proudly eating parsley, beans and lettuce straight from the garden! This is incredible! Having an abundance of fresh vegetables on-site has also allowed us to implement a mini produce market where the children learn about agriculture & business.”
