Kevin Espiritu


Epic Gardening

Job Title



  • Dedicated to helping people grow anything to produce “a substantial amount of their own food at home and regain a sense of ownership, health and all-around life satisfaction simply by cultivating a garden.”
  • Published his first book, “Field Guide to Urban Gardening,” to teach people how to be a gardener, not simply how to grow plants or use specific methods.


On His Bookshelf: In his spare time, Kevin likes to read. Anything by Roald Dahl as well as the Redwall series from Brian Jacques are favorites.

Fun Facts

A Gamble That Paid Off: Kevin paid his way through college playing online poker, “which dissuaded me from following a more traditional career path, and eventually led to the path I’m on now with Epic Gardening.”
