Santa Cruz Sentinel – A cut high above the rest


The Santa Cruz Sentinel did a feature on our sustainable silvertip christmas trees! Article Excerpt: “When it comes to Christmas trees, there’s one variety that DIG Gardens owner Cara Meyers knows her customers can lean on. The Santa Cruz merchant expects to be featured in the December issue of Sunset for her precut silvertips, one of five precut varieties sold at the Water Street store. The evergreen firs, which get their name because of their metallic-looking foliage, also boast strong, openly spaced branches that lend themselves well to heavier ornaments.” Click here to read full article.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel covered our participation in Sunset Magazine’s 2011 Sunset Celebration Weekend. Article Excerpt: “The Cargotecture home is uber contemporary and modern,” said Meyers, who pens the Get Growing column for the Sentinel. “Trying to mix the urban farm aspect with a really contemporary look was definitely a challenge.

Owner Cara Meyers has introduced us to Woolly Pockets (around $40), wall-hanging pouches that hold enough soil for an artful array of plants. The store also carries terrariums like the Recycled Tear Drop ($59) and holds workshops on making spectacular vertical succulent pictures, pretty much the definition of living art (the next one is Sept. 3). These and many more innovations exploring the art of flora are on display
