Sowing the Seeds of Change

oneseedfeatureimage_UCI_1.jpg

Stella Liu, a UC Irvine senior majoring in international studies, is the founder and creator of OneSeed. It’s a subscription-based gardening kit that arrives on the doorstep with three plants in a handcrafted redwood planter. Each season, new seedlings are delivered so that subscribers can exercise their green thumb year-round. Online videos supplement the experience, and salad recipes are provided for enjoying the fruits of one’s labor. Her goal is to motivate people to start growing their own food and to connect with where their food comes from. It’s a for-profit venture that seeks to have a positive effect on the environment and society.
