The Garden

The Garden started life as a few raised beds in 2014. Located at the back of Senad's family home this garden which first started out as a hobby for Senad has year on year grown as he set forth to learn more every year.

This thirst for adjusting, improving and growing the garden was fueled by the difference in taste between store bought and fresh veggies from the garden.

Over the years the garden has developed from, at first 5 raised beds, to now being a combination of raised beds, micro green production, "no-dig" beds and four polytunnels.

 

Using absolutely no chemicals this garden feeds a number of people fresh, seasonal vegetables with our Family Bags, our local village creche and items can be found in a number of Luxembourg's finest eateries.

My passion for growing healthy food has been seeded by my parents as a child. I grew up in the city and those weekends at my parent’s property outside the city were always fun. Being able to pick fresh seasonal fruits and veggies from our garden has always been great experience. My memories of walking around the garden, watching plants grow and picking their fruits stayed with me forever.

Just like majority of people life brings new challenges and as I grew up, I lost that touch with gardening. However, that passion for growing could not stay dormant for too long. Around 10 years ago I started a small family garden using a few wooden raised beds. Having fresh fruits and veggies with the taste that brought back my childhood memories, was my first reward. The second one, probably more important one, was that I had my family hooked on gardening. They loved eating healthy produce from our small garden during the season.

Spending 15-20 minutes a day in touch with the nature felt therapeutical and I felt that combination of daily gardening work, staying in touch with the nature started healing my body and soul.

That was the trigger for me to start a dream called Letzgrow. As I learned more about different growing techniques the idea of really growing fruits and veggies started becoming clearer.

That all lead me to a massive lifestyle change and deciding to devote rest of my life to make a difference and help as many people as possible to live and eat healthier either by providing them with fresh produce or helping them grow their own.

So, three years ago I decided to finish my career in Financial sector and start growing.

Letzgrow officially started to exist in 2018 with our garden in Gonderange and we plan to grow season by season.
