Turn your bare lawn
into a productive garden with
Lawns to Lunch
How come there’s nothing better than eating home-grown fruits and veggies?
Organic food is great for obvious reasons;
less chemicals etc..
But do you know WHY home-grown veggies are far better than store-brought organic?
The answer: The soil & nutrients.
The pressure of modern agricultural methods, even if done organically, strip increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows.
The soil needs nourishing as much as the plants in order to maintain optimum balance. (Something our Ancestors were acutely aware of.)
Simply dumping synthetic nutrients in the form of fertilizer may grow a quick crop, but it ultimately disrupts the ecology of the soil and creates a low quality plant.
Why would this matter?
Isn’t it enough just to just grow the plant?
- When a plant either suffers shortages of vital soil nutrients or an oversupply of a few synthetic ones, instead of making proteins, vitamins and enzymes (all the stuff we humans need to be vitally healthy) they switch over to making raw calories.
Mainly comprised of carbon (from the air) and hydrogen (from the water).
It’s a pretty simple equation;
when nutrition goes down, calories go up.
When nutrition is down, so is our health and well-being.
Add on top of that; even if hydro-chilled within minutes of harvest, majority of vegetables will still lose around half of what vitamin content they have within 48 hours of harvest.
(Not to mention the loss of valuable enzymes that help the body assimilate the food)
What this equals for us as the consumer is paying a premium price for low quality product. Even with the best intentions of eating a healthy diet, it's becoming increasingly difficult with our food supply getting worse and worse.
It’s little wonder people that grow their own food get hooked on it; Our bodies respond and operate so differently when given the proper fuel to THRIVE!

"Aaron is a professional, hardworking, innovative gardener who supplies solutions to complex gardening needs. He built me a glasshouse, several garden beds, and installed watering systems, as well as giving me the information I needed to succeed in my first attempts at growing my own produce. He is also a really nice guy, and I have no qualms whatsoever in giving my highest endorsement and recommendation. 5 stars!!"
- Laurie, Tranmere
"Aaron has been wonderful to deal with and we’re so happy with our new veggie gardens!
Quick service and excellent communication. Can highly recommend him!"
- Catherine, Cambridge
Building more than just garden beds.
The bigger vision for Lawns to Lunch is to revolutionise the way people perceive and use vacant urban landscapes and utilise the inherent value & oppurtunity within them.
The goal is build more than just garden beds. The goal is to build a more resilient, healthy, connected and free community through the repurposing of our urban garden spaces into thriving organic fruit and vegetable patches.
So that we can all experience the joy and well-being of a nutrient dense, organic diet and lifestyle, as well as inspiring and educating a whole new generation to live more in harmony with the Earth and her natural kingdoms.
But I don't want to do it alone.
It's going to take a tribe to bring this to life and to it's full potential.
As such, my vision is to also facilitate mens/fathers groups and combining them with garden working bee's to bring the power of community to life.
I, Aaron, will be combining my love for food/gardening with my passion/skills as a space holder to create a tribe/network of people committed to healing themselves and the Earth through the regeneration of our urban landscapes.
Jim Gale, founder of Food Forest Abundance, shared in a recent interview with Del Bigtree, that in the United States there are 40 million acres of lawn.
Lawns are the most destructive monoculture on the planet, absorbing more resources and pesticides than any other crop, without providing any yield.
If we were to turn 30% of that, says Gale, we could be food self-sufficient without relying on imports or chemicals.
