The first harvest of 4 different basils for Willie Jane Restaurant

Grow like the Pros because the Pros grow for you!

Ever since our build-out started at The Cook’s Garden by HGEL on Abbot Kinney here in Venice, CA, we have been approached by many residents in the neighborhood asking about opportunities to lease a box for themselves and their families. While we continue to talk to restaurants and chefs in the area, we have decided to open a limited number of boxes to home cooks in the neighborhood.

We’re not a community garden so think of this as a huge CSA box, but you decide what we grow for you. We sit down with you seasonally to plan and design your planting for the next season all for a weekly cost comparable to the average family’s farmers market/organic grocer budget! We welcome leases split between one other family or person.

Please email us for details on pricing per box and to make an appointment to arrange a lease. Below you’ll find the details about home cook leases at The Cook’s Garden.  If you’d like to download and print a copy, click HERE!

This is one of our Home Cook's Boxes -planted just 2 weeks ago, they got their first harvest of 1.5lbs of lettuce!

“I picked up the harvest and WOW!  That stuff is delicious.  I’m sharing it with my employees.  I honestly don’t think I have ever tasted such yummy lettuce!  I am so excited to see what is next.  Thank you for such a bountiful harvest.  I am really so happy!!!”
All my best,
