The Fruit of Our Labor Love is the fruit of our labour; Surely the toil of our days shall end Beyond the fruit of this earth; Though the hand that sows the seed is born o f the soil And must return to the soil; Yet the eye that sees the light is born of the sun And shall return to the sun; And as stars in the fields of the night Our souls scattered in darkness Sprout forth into Light; Out of the sands of Experience And the waters of Time Love breathes Life into the Seed And the Fruit of our Labour is LOVE.
Agape Gardens was founded in 2012 with a goal of creating a land-based, sustainable lifestyle. Through our hand-grown, hand-crafted, nutrient-dense products we want to share our passion for individual and planetary health and well-being .
What started off as offering a variety of vegetables and kale chips at the Perth farmer's market grew to an established line of foods and beverages: ArtiZen Kombucha in bottles and on tap, ArtiZen Bone broth, ArtiZen Fermentory! Now available across Ottawa, Ottawa Valley and Kingston.
We believe that diversity is the key to a resilient homestead in the rapidly changing climate of our planet and human society. We are excited to contribute our knowledge and our ARTiZEN foods to the growing community of foodies in our region!
