Is all this time indoors driving you crazy? Thanks to a new company, you can soak up some vitamin D while practicing yoga, clocking in time at the office or simply relaxing.
, a new online marketplace, is allowing Angelinos to book private time in a local garden just like an Airbnb. There are currently 17 locations available for rent throughout Los Angeles County.
Beyond taking in some fresh air, each garden offers a variety of event options. For example, book a Mother’s Day Tea or Art Class in Inglewood, a private yoga class in Mount Washington or some office time in Mid-City. A great way to add a little more zen to your work week! Rates start as low as $20 per hour and go up to $100+ depending on the type of event and number of attendees.
The company was conceptualized a year ago by cofounders Abhishek Arora and Rishi Kumar, who wanted to develop a business that would provide access to private urban gardens and benefit the environment.
We LOVE this idea!

Homeowners and caretakers are able to list their organic gardens for rent, similar to the way that Airbnb lists rooms and homes for guests.
