Our Story

Hello! Thank you for checking out our website and wanting to know more about how we got here.  


We are Amanda and Grant Swindall.  We founded Birmingham Kitchen Gardens after realizing we want to share our experience and knowledge of backyard gardening with those in the Birmingham area.  We found a love for gardening after living in rural Alabama for a couple of years due to a job location change.  When our jobs once again had us move to the suburbs of Birmingham, a suitable garden area was on the top of the list for potential homes.  We found a garden (with a home!) in Alabaster and have been working to improve upon both ever since.  We look forward to helping you get a kitchen garden growing and producing for your household!
