About Lunaria Gardens
Lunaria Gardens is the brainchild of Kristen Jas Vietty, an urban grower based in Philadelphia. Our specialty, human-scale practices are informed by a background in visual art, micro-farming, and permaculture. We celebrate biological diversity and do not use any pesticides, GMOs, or synthetic materials in our work.
A curated selection of edibles, natives, ornamentals, and houseplants are started in a greenhouse in West Philly, and grown out in Roxborough. Our plants are available to purchase by customized assortments, pre-order, or at select retail locations. We also offer plant rental services for events, photoshoots, and the like. We may be able to accommodate wholesale inquiries and custom grow requests. If we don’t currently have something in stock, we can usually find it, so get in touch if you’re looking for something weird.

Cut Flower Farm
We grow a diverse array of premium florals in Roxborough and North Philadelphia. Our cut flowers are available by subscription, pre-order, or at select retail locations. We also happily supply professional florists and designers with wholesale or custom grown product. To inquire about stocking or purchasing our wholesale florals, drop us a line, or sign up for our wholesale floral availability email updates.
Foraging + Gleaning
Foraging is the ancient way we connect our humanity with our local landscapes. Our unique palette of offerings is expanded thanks to our harvesting partnerships with area landowners and organizations. We work with Philadelphia Orchard Project to convert their fruit tree and shrub prunings, which would otherwise be wasted, into gorgeous flowering branches available February through April. And at Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, we remove and utilize invasive species, like nettles, Eleagnus, bittersweet, and porcelain berry. We are always interested in more foraging and gleaning connections, and can sometimes offer monetary or other compensation. Have enough spring bulbs, lilacs, or peonies to share? Drop us a line.
Designing + Teaching
We provide premium bouquets, arrangements, and wreaths, available a la carte or by subscription. We offer design services for weddings, events, and editorial photoshoots. In addition to our public educational and event offerings, we’re open to discussing custom workshops and pop-up events. Email to discuss.
