-- Tom Garlock
is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for the project WEEDIES | garden gloves that FIT, PROTECT & LAST.
Tom and Mary LOVE to Garden. To them, it's a special type of therapy. But it's hard to reach 'Garden Zen'
when the gloves you're wearing have fingers tips that blow-out, allow dirt & mulch in, only last a couple of weeks and let your hands get TRASHED! So they decided to break the status quo and create gloves that would FIT, PROTECT & LAST made from sustainable materials & practices.
Tom Garlock says, "As passionate gardeners we find there's a certain type of therapy you receive when you tend and care for your yard and garden. We feel that protecting a gardeners hands, which are their most valuable tool, helps to elevate that therapeutic experience."
He also added, "The idea came from problems that Mary (the 'Girl' in Garden like a Girl) consistently experienced with garden gloves. The vast majority of women's gloves fit poorly, developed holes in the finger tips quickly and allowed dirt and mulch into the glove."
During the testing and research they discovered that women can have the same hand size but different finger lengths. In fact, longer lengths are often called 'piano fingers'. So they again decided to break the status quo and offer 2 finger lengths which no other company does. Spring is right around the corner, and the gloves are due to arrive very soon. Your funding help will be used for packaging, social media efforts, advertising, and spring event attendance. With you behind them they'll be able to take a big step forward and bring Garden like a Girl to Ruggedly Feminine
With just 6 days left in this campaign, your support is needed to raise funds to make this campaign a successful one. Please consider getting involved, at whatever level you can, and help "WEEDIES | garden gloves that FIT, PROTECT & LAST
