GreenStalk Video Review from the Vegan Athlete!

on November 10, 2015

Hello, Arizona! GreenStalk has just been reviewed by Arizonian Jake Mace of Vegan Athlete. If you haven’t heard of Jake, you’ve been missing out. Jake makes vegan look really cool and attainable…even in the desert!

In his review, “Grow 30 Plants in Less Than 2 Sq Ft with the GreenStalk Garden Vertical Tower Garden,” he shows everyone how and what to plant, why he planted what he did and how to stack the GreenStalk “like you do a plastic Lego set you had as a kid.”

We’d like to highlight some things he did differently than we do in our temperate climate. We typically use ProMix and Osmocote fertilizer, but Jake used a unique blend of:

  • Coconut Coir brick (dissolved in fish pond water, adding more nutrients)
  • City of Tempe, home-grown compost*
  • Azomite Rock Dust (available at
  • Organic Worm Castings (yes, worm poop!)

He mixes it up and tops it off with more Coconut Coir to help with water retention – a cool tip for those growing in super dry climates like the desert.

With his wife in mind, he planted her Spinach, Stevia, Lemon Verbena, Dinosaur Kale, Curled Parsley and Italian Parsley.

Jake plans to do updates on how his GreenStalk is growing monthly, so be sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel VeganAthlete. You can see the full video below:

The City of Tempe actually collects green waste from Tempe residents, turns it into compost, then gives it back to Tempe residents for their own personal use.

    Just saw video about your product. Do you ship to Australia. How can I order one of these fabulous things

    Hi Sonja! We can ship to Australia, but it would be quite expensive. We would be happy to send you a shipping quote though. Just send your shipping address to and we will send you a quote. Thanks!

    1000 Vegan Recipes has been sitting on my shelf for awhile, and now I m relying on it to transition from a vegetarian to a vegan diet. Thanks for all the great recommendations! I m not familiar with the others, but I want to check some out and start cooking!
