Welcome to Vita!

We started with the launching of The African Keyhole Garden – a product that helps solve the ever increasing issue of drought in North America.  It took us all the way to Africa to build the beginning of 500 gardens through the Kageyo Garden Project.  What we realized through this is that we’re passionate about solving problems.

 

We hope that we inspire you in every way – from growing to sharing to giving.  The world needs vegetables![/vc_column_text][/no_elements_holder_item][/no_elements_holder][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][no_image_with_text alignment=”center” image=”51897″ title=”Pleasure to meet you!”]

Things that we’re passionate about:

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”32px” image_repeat=”no-repeat”][vc_column_text]

Complete control over our food.

 

Many foods today are genetically modified – scientifically altered.  The desire for plump, tasty organic, heirloom vegetables has never been stronger.  Take control of the foods you eat by growing them right at your home.  Your health and your taste-buds will thank you!

 

Empowering people around the world.

 

We feel that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to grow their own foods.  That’s why we’re deeply involved in feeding not only our families, but giving ability for [infopopup tag=foodbank] to grow their own foods.

We also believe that everyone should have access to healthy foods, and we’re helping empower people with that.

Today’s vegetables don’t taste the same.

 

Just the other day I purchased some of the plumpest, strawberries I have ever seen.  But there was just one problem – they had no flavor!  These aren’t the same strawberries I used to eat when I was a kid… something has changed to today’s vegetables.

 

Organic vegetables fight diseases.

 

We’ve all had people in our lives effected by disease.  And it’s been widely proven that the most effective way to help combat disease and ailments is to be mindful of what we put into our bodies.  The foods we eat are paramount for health and well being.

It’s been proven over and over.  Greens combat disease.  Vegetables bring life.  But not just for health reasons only.  Gardening brings enjoyment, therapy and a sense of accomplishment.

For us at Vita, a love for personal sustainability demands that we also look outside of our personal lives and help ones around us locally, nationally and globally.  We support food banks locally and across the nation encouraging and assisting them to grow their own vegetables.  We also help communities globally.  Through our philanthropic efforts we partnering with organizations to help families have access to good, fresh, foods.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]At Vita we have a love for designing beautiful and functional things that help us become holistically healthier in every way.  All of the products we create are conscious of this fact including their environmental impact.  We realize that conducting business – from lighting our office to running our computers – produces waste as a by-product.  So we work steadily to reduce those harms.  We use BPA-free and food-grade materials rather than less costly alternatives.

 

Our values reflect those of a business started by people conscious of sustainability, and the minimalist style we live and appreciate. The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.

Staying true to our core values has helped us create a company we’re proud to run and work for.  And our focus on making the best products possible has brought us success in the marketplace.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” header_style=”” anchor=”” in_content_menu=”” content_menu_title=”” icon_pack=”font_awesome” content_menu_fa_icon=”” content_menu_fe_icon=”” content_menu_ion_icon=”” content_menu_linea_icon=”” text_align=”left” video=”” video_overlay=”” video_overlay_image=”” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_image=”” background_image=”” pattern_background=”” full_screen_section_height=”no” vertically_align_content_in_middle=”no” section_height=”” use_as_box=”” parallax_speed=”” background_color=”” logo_in_content_menu=”” custom_widget_area=”” content_menu_border_bottom=”” content_menu_border_color=”” content_menu_border_style=”solid” border_top_color=”” border_color=”” side_padding=”” padding_top=”” padding_bottom=”” color=”” hover_color=”” more_button_label=”” less_button_label=”” button_position=”” css_animation=”” transition_delay=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no” box_shadow_color=”” horizontal_offset=”” vertical_offset=”” box_shadow_blur=”” box_shadow_spread=”” el_id=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Our Mission Statement” text_in_box=”yes” text_position=”center” box_border_style=”solid” line_border_style=”solid” line_dots=”no” up=”20″ down=”20″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” header_style=”” anchor=”” in_content_menu=”” content_menu_title=”” icon_pack=”font_awesome” content_menu_fa_icon=”” content_menu_fe_icon=”” content_menu_ion_icon=”” content_menu_linea_icon=”” text_align=”left” video=”” video_overlay=”” video_overlay_image=”” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_image=”” background_image=”” pattern_background=”” full_screen_section_height=”no” vertically_align_content_in_middle=”no” section_height=”” use_as_box=”” parallax_speed=”” background_color=”” logo_in_content_menu=”” custom_widget_area=”” content_menu_border_bottom=”” content_menu_border_color=”” content_menu_border_style=”solid” border_top_color=”” border_color=”” side_padding=”” padding_top=”” padding_bottom=”” color=”” hover_color=”” more_button_label=”” less_button_label=”” button_position=”” css_animation=”” transition_delay=”” box_shadow_on_row=”no” box_shadow_color=”” horizontal_offset=”” vertical_offset=”” box_shadow_blur=”” box_shadow_spread=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
