Inspired by my parents and grandparents tending to their gardens, I chose to honor my ancestors by starting my own in my Los Angeles apartment and sharing what I learn with my community. Since 2019, my network of nursery owners, extensive collectors, hobbyists, botanists, and pot manufacturers has grown, taking me to entirely new levels of plant parenting than I could have imagined. Thanks to social media, I found many small businesses (avoiding big box stores was my mission) and people worldwide who also love plants!
Caring for plants continues to be a learning process for me, just like most other things. Plants aren't difficult; they simply require empathy and patience. Like plants, humans grow and go into dormancy only to bloom when their needs are met. I know first-hand how hard life feels at times, and it's a privilege to spread the appreciation for life gardening has given me to those who are interested. Tending to my 110+ plants has helped me tend to my own stillness and address where I could be growing to feel my best.
Thank you for giving me the chance to share my joy with you.
