Learn More About Who We Are & What We Do 

We help Tampa Bay grow its own food.

We design, build, install and plant your edible organic garden for you, leaving you to enjoy its harvest.

We teach workshops & classes to both youth & adults, plant fruit trees and sell DIY garden kits. If you prefer a more DIY approach, we'll help you dream up and design your own abundant gardening space.

Peas and Love was birthed out of a love for delicious, fresh, wholesome, local food and the desire to help people grow their own. Your food doesn't get any more flavorful or nutrient dense than when it's only traveling from your yard to your kitchen. 

Founder, Desiree' Sims, recalls her earliest memory was staring out of her  back door and picturing a vegetable garden growing there...she started pursuing that mission while in college and hasn't stopped since.

With over 15 years of organic growing experience in the Tampa Bay area, we bring the vision to your backyard or place of business; helping you get your own fresh food straight to your table, season after season. Your home garden.

Let us partner with you today and help you get the edible garden you want, at the pace you desire.

Meet The Owner 
~Desiree' Sims~

See the plants growing in the background? That's okra. 

See that smile on the owner? That's how happy she is about growing veggies; so much so that she takes selfies with them!

Desiree' is a Florida native (third generation born & raised right her in Tampa Bay) & comes from a long line of "green thumbs" & farmers. Fun fact: her paternal Great Grandmother was Sadie Hatfield (or so she was told ;)

Desiree's passion for sustainable, healthy & tasty food shines through her work every day. She prides herself on producing plentiful bounties for her customers & brings over 13 years of growing experience to your garden.

While not gardening, she can be found playing with her crazy clan, reading a good book or sipping tea.
