Welcome to Neverland Garden!

Welcome to Neverland Garden!

Hello, dear readers, and welcome to our little corner of the internet! We're excited to share our story with you today, the story of how a challenging year in 2020 transformed into years of growth, creativity, and a deep love for all things green and handmade.

We are backyard gardeners hailing from the New London, nestled in the heart of Northeast Missouri. Our journey began with a simple desire to connect with nature, provide our family with pesticide-free produce, and foster a stronger sense of community. Little did we know, this humble start would lead us down an enchanting path of discovery.

Meet our family: there's me, Sarah, my boyfriend Dave, and my children, Emma and Noah. As the saying goes, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Well, when life gave us challenges in 2020, leading to more time spent at home, we decided to grow a garden.

Our three-acre property underwent a magical transformation. What began as a modest 20x30 garden plot grew and grew until it covered the back acre of our property with lush vegetable beds and beautiful garden spaces. The joy of watching a tiny seed evolve into a thriving plant quickly became an addictive passion.

But that wasn't all. Our garden had a surprise in store for us. It gifted us with luffa sponges, which sparked our curiosity and led us to the art of soap-making. At first, it was just a fun experiment, something to do on rainy days. However, it didn't take long for our friends and family to fall in love with our handmade artisan soaps.

With their encouragement and support, we decided to take a leap of faith. In no time, what began as a hobby became a full-blown business. Our little soap-making venture blossomed alongside our ever-expanding garden.

Fast forward to 2023, and we've taken another giant leap forward. We now sell not only our homegrown, pesticide-free vegetables but also our artisan soaps and suncatchers. You can find us at our local farmers' market, sharing the fruits of our labor with our wonderful community. Today we launched our online store, allowing us to connect with fellow garden enthusiasts and soap aficionados from around the world.

So, here we are, inviting you to join us on this incredible journey. From novice gardeners tending to a small plot of land to thriving entrepreneurs with a vision for a greener, more sustainable future, our story is one of growth, creativity, and the unshakable belief that a little love and determination can transform challenges into opportunities.

Through our blog, we'll share gardening tips, soap-making adventures, and the joy of living in Northeast Missouri. We hope to inspire you to embrace the beauty of locally-grown, pesticide-free produce and the charm of handcrafted artisan goods. Together, we can nurture our souls and our planet.

Thank you for joining us on this adventure. Our Northeast Missouri sanctuary is open to all who share our love for nature, creativity, and community. We can't wait to grow, learn, and connect with you all.

~ Sarah & Dave
