About Candide

Who’s it for?

Candide is an app for gardeners to find inspiration and knowledge about all things gardening related. In the app, you’ll find places to visit, knowledge about plants, problems, how to guides and pictures from the community, sharing what’s going on in their gardens.

Our story

Candide draws inspiration from Voltaire’s novel of the same name. His love song to gardening follows the journey of the lead character, through the trials and tribulations of life as he experiences extreme hardship and disillusionment. And yet, in the end, Candide is at peace with himself, life and the world through cultivating his garden. “We must take care of our garden” is his lasting profound reflection. As a social gardening app, we would like to encourage people to reconnect with their gardens and share the joy of gardening with our community. We believe that gardening is the root of happiness, and cultivates well-being for the mind and soul.
