Kulturing Kuriosity with Matt Harris

 

 

 

Matt Harris is the CEO and founder of Vegepod. After failing to grow his own veggies, he realised there must be a lot of people out there like him so he worked to solve the problems associated with urban farming and the Vegepod was born.

After successfully growing Vegepod in Australia, he moved to California in 2017 to start up Vegepod USA.

Day to day, his focus is on building relationships with customers and distributors and growing the company footprint across the United States. Matt loves working in this industry and finds it very satisfying to see so many people embracing gardening and growing their own healthy, organic vegetables at home. Matt enjoys making and selling a product that makes people happy and makes them feel good about themselves - how many companies can say that?!
