Our story



I'm Emily Fan, avid gardener and founder of Leevo. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I turned to gardening in my tiny Toronto backyard as a creative outlet, a means of stress relief, and a way to strengthen my connection with nature. 

I very quickly realized that shopping for plants and garden supplies was completely overwhelming and inconvenient. I also wanted the ability to safely shop online without putting myself and others at risk of the coronavirus. 

Learning how to care for my plants required a ton of time and energy. I often found myself doing hours of research and sifting through community forums to get the best gardening advice. There had to be an easier way for someone to be a gardener, so I started Leevo. 

Leevo's mission is to make gardening simple, so that everyone can reap the many benefits that come along with it. 

I hope you will join me on this mission by signing up for the Leevo newsletter and following us on Instagram. We've got big plans for the future of gardening!
