The Team

Kevin Espiritu

Founder

Hi there – I’m Kevin. I got into gardening in early 2011 with my first hydroponics setup. I lived in a condo back then, so I didn’t have space for a big backyard soil garden.
I had to get creative.

Lorin Nielsen

Lifetime Gardener

Hi! I’m Lorin. As a kid, I planted my first plant under the careful tutelage of my mom. However, the neighbor’s cherry tomatoes were what really had my attention.

Rachel Garcia

Succulent Fanatic

Rachel here! Even though my dad’s an avid gardener, I didn’t discover my love for it until I went to college. I took a landscape design course for an elective and was hooked – plants are amazing!

Elizabeth Cramer

Plant Lover

Elizabeth Cramer is a chef, plant lover, and potter. She loves teaching others how to cook and grow their own food.

Ann McCarron

Horticulturalist

I love working outdoors with people and plants, so working freelance in community and therapeutic horticulture is a dream come true.

Huan Song

Sustainability Specialist

My love for gardening was inevitable having been raised by two grandmothers with epically green thumbs.

Jillian Balli

Arborist

Hello! I’m Jillian. I’ve always had a tremendous fascination with plants and nature.

Rebecca Hendricks

Master Gardener volunteer

One year, I decided to do some research to figure out how I could grow peppers on my apartment balcony, and it worked! I realized gardening is a skill you learn, not an innate talent you are born with.

Melissa Kruse-Peeples

My academic background is in ethnobotany and anthropology and I have a passion for teaching others about biological and cultural diversity.
