The urban grow kits are created and shipped by the Urban Agriculture Company of Los Angeles, California and range in price from $17 to $19. In her own words, Oprah explains the kits:
“I absolutely love cooking with fresh produce from my garden, and these urban grow kits will give city folks the same joy. They provide organic seeds, organic soil, and a container made from 100 percent recycled tea bags; you provide the sunlight, water, and love.” — Oprah
