Edible Gardens LA founder Lauri Kranz shares her secrets for planning, planting, growing, and maintaining luscious edible gardens, no matter the setting or size of the plot. Through gorgeous gardens created for her clients, Lauri shares her essential methods for growing abundant organic food. This practical guide is built around Lauri’s philosophy that nourishment and beauty are not separate goals. It’s also at the forefront of a gardening revolution, where more and more people are craving a patch of land for growing healthy, organic food from their own gardens. A Garden Can Be Anywhere reveals Lauri’s knack for providing both beauty and bounty in her clients’ outdoor spaces.

Praise for
A Garden Can Be Anywhere

“After coming home from tour, there’s nothing I love more than taking a walk in the garden, collecting a medley of veggies and greens that have sprouted and thrived in my absence, and creating a magical, fresh-off-the-vine lunch for myself. Lauri has given me the gift of the perfect garden for my sweet little ceremony. The veggies and the birds’ songs bring me back to earth every time!”
—Katy Perry, singer, songwriter

“I will never forget the day of our first meeting. Lauri came in, truly like a ray of sunshine, swooping our kids up into her passion for gardening, vegetables,the land, and life itself. What a joy that she has now put her love and lessons into this gorgeous book.”
—from the foreword by Suzanne Goin

“Lauri Kranz not only set up my edible garden, but also created and established a relationship between me and my backyard. She is the Tinder for me and my vegetables.”
—Nicole Richie, fashion designer, author, actress

“With four thumbs between us, we see Lauri Kranz as part shamaness, part poet, part garden guru. She cultivates delicious bounty where there was none (our garden) and imbues such style and care into all the seeds, buds, and soil she touches. We are so grateful for her wisdom!”
—Naomi Scott, producer, writer, and Adam Scott, actor, producer, comedian

“Lauri’s authentic, unique character is so reflective in her work. Her amazing ability to help us learn how to bring the outside in. . . . Our garden came to life and became an extension of our home. She creates a beautiful and thoughtful space, yet is practical with earthy functionality.”
—Amanda Anka, actor, and Jason Bateman, actor, producer, director

How very delicate and miraculous nature is … to not take for granted as i’ve watched seeds to harvest.. this cycle of life running its course in front of me … the taste of organic vegetables grown in my garden – kind of like tasting for the first time… a tomato …a cucumber  the blossom of a zucchini – that hot peppers have white delicate flowers ……the bees, all of the creatures i never take a moment to notice … lauri has brought this awareness, gentle,powerful, magical beauty, of this perfect eco system, perfect nature,  into my garden, into my life.
– Nina Garduno, Founder FREECITY

“Every time I see Lauri, I come away feeling nourished. Her superpower is her warmth, and her ease that makes any conversation about your garden feel empowering. She is a grounding force that strips away any gardening intimidation and makes you feel strong, capable, joyful. There’s no ego in her approach; she’s really rooting for you. Being around Lauri is such a gift.”
—Maya Rudolph, actress, comedian, singer

“If you’ve ever scrolled Instagram, covetously marveling over your friend’s gardens, chances are Lauri is the green thumb behind those tomatoes or squash you never thought you could grow. She not only creates beautiful gardens, but also creates a culture that teaches you how to live like a gardener. She plots your garden, yes, but she also finds the place you’ll drink your coffee while weeding. Edible gardens are a lifestyle choice. Much like some of my favorite cookbooks, A Garden Can Be Anywhere gives you the skills to become a kind of micro farmer within dreamy landscapes that are actually possible at your very own home.”
—Jenni Konner, director, writer, producer; showrunner and writer of the HBO series Girls

“We live in our garden, but we couldn’t do it without Lauri. Her knowledge and her guidance are everything to us.”
—Jeanne Tripplehorn, actor, and Leland Orser, actor

Lauri has taught me how to grow and harvest my own food, and her teachings have been such a blessing. She showed me how to pay attention to the rhythms of sun and soil and the art of slowing things down. Lauri has taught me everything I know about growing my own food. I couldn’t be more grateful, because nothing tastes better (and I’ve never felt better) than when I’m eating something fresh from my own garden.
– Jenni Kayne

“Lauri has helped us bring our garden to life! A vegetable garden is truly a spectacle to marvel. A great display of nature’s scenery, pure growth and raw beauty and a humans display of endless dedication, tried patience, passionate commitment and absolute love. What you put into your garden you will receive back plentiful.”
– Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
