Good Earth Plant Company – We Give Back
From the very start, giving back to the community has always been a central company value at Good Earth Plant Company. We consider it a small way to express personal appreciation for our continued success.
We are fortunate to be able work doing something we love – helping people connect with plants and nature, and reap the benefits of biophilic design in their lives every day. That’s why we support several community organizations through donations of money, materials and time on a regular basis.
Over the years, Good Earth Plant Company’s employees have enthusiastically given back to many deserving nonprofit organizations and exciting civic events in the San Diego region.
A recent philanthropic project ended up inspiring us to create an ongoing program. Good Earth Plant Company agreed to provide pro bono interior plantscaping services for the residents of the Alpha Project’s “Alpha Square,” a studio apartment building for low-income and homeless individuals. We also provided plants to the residents for their apartments.
The residents were so excited and happy to get their very own plants, Good Earth Plant Company started the “Plants With Purpose” program.

Good Earth Plant Company is always looking for new organizations to partner with in our efforts. We will never consider our work complete. Our staff of expert horticulturalists and “Eco-Warriors” looks forward to working with these and more organizations in the years to come.
