    "I am incredibly satisfied with my Good Shit Garden Kit! I went from growing a handful of small, end-rot ridden roma tomatoes in 2022 to growing 30kg of healthy, delicious romas this season, amongst other happy veggies and herbs - all thanks to the chicken manure and Cole's informative and easy co-planting tips. The reclaimed raised bed is beautiful to top it off! I would HIGHLY recommend any of The Good Shit products and resources to anyone looking to start or amp up their gardening game while supporting a sustainable and local business!"

    “I had 1 cubic yard of chicken manure delivered to me by Cole from The Good Shit. My garden didn’t just come alive, it ascended to a higher dimension. Every single plant is thriving and producing early abundant harvests. My backyard is 20x20 feet and I’m officially stocked up and preserved all our vegetable and herbs until next spring. All our harvests are now being shared with friends & community. I’ve never had this happen! My tomato plants have always been prone to blight and this is my first season ever where this hasn’t been an issue. This was my most hands off season of gardening and by far my most successful one, thanks to The Good Shit.”

    “I was so pleased with my garden kit! Not only was the planter absolutely beautiful, but the extras were the absolute icing on the cake. Free delivery was amazing and I loved it so much I plan on purchasing another one to match this upcoming spring! Cole is nothing but kind and incredibly helpful – I’m so glad I stumbled upon him and The Good Shit!”
