Grow your own herbs right at home. No green thumb, and no yard space needed. You just need to add water and sunlight, so a window sill is perfect. These kits come complete with organic soil and Biochar from Colorado—an amazing natural way to help plants grow indoors. Biochar is the charred remnants of organic agriculture waste and it’s great for indoor growing because it retains moisture, aerates soil, and increases nutrient absorption.

  • Made in the USA: California
  • Materials: 100% recyclable cans
  • Includes: 2 cans organic basil seeds, 2 cans organic cilantro seeds, biochar for moisture control, organic fertilizer, nutrient-rich soil
  • The secret is in the soil. Biochar (charred remnants of organic agricultural waste) has a high moisture retentive capacity that helps avoid over-watering issues, aerates the soil for quick root growth, and increases nutrient absorption and microbial activity in the soil
  • No need to mix your own soil
  • Easy-to-grow containers for small-space, windowsill gardening
  • Easy & fun—plant, water, and watch it grow
  • No messy drainage
  • Dimensions: 3.7" x 3.7" x 4.4"

Grow organic basil and organic cilantro in just three simple steps:

  • Open the can & plant seeds in soil
  • Add water and place can in full sun
  • Harvest and enjoy

I love these.


I put them in my kitchen window. However, I don't get a lot of sun in my house so I purchased a plant light. They loved that and are growing like mad. It is fun to watch them and I can hardly wait until I can use them in a salad, etc.More > < Less


Great purchase


We gave this as a gift and it is already growing. Our granddaughter loved it and since she likes to cook this will really be fun to use. I plan to buy one for myself as well. We are very happy with the Gardenin-a canMore > < Less


Lovin' It!

Easy to use




Garden in a Can


Mine are just started -- a couple of weeks, but it's fun to watch the sprouts as they grow and develop. Can't wait to harvest the basil in particular!

About Back to the Roots

Home Grown

Want a fun, ready-to-grow way to connect with your food? Back to the Roots makes kits that are perfect for growing a bit of it right at home. No green thumb and no yard space needed. Each kit contains everything except water and sunlight.

Founders Nik and Alex are two UC Berkeley buddies who were inspired by the idea of growing mushrooms in coffee grounds. Their business ethics professor mentioned it and Nik and Alex took it to heart. They launched their business while still in school, and since it has won all kinds of awards, including being named to BusinessWeek Top 25 Social Entrepreneurs.

Back to the Roots started their sustainable mushroom kits with discarded coffee grounds from Peet's Coffee. They expanded to more products, and the latest is Garden in a Can which lets you grow herbs. These kits, too, use recycled organic matter—biochar from Colorado, which is the charred remnants of organic agriculture waste. It’s great for indoor growing because it retains moisture, aerates soil, and increases nutrient absorption.

Back to the Roots kits are satisfying, sustainable ways to cultivate your own at home—indoors or out.
