    With a degree in Environmental Science from the University of Washington I’ve had the privilege of working with plants for over 10 years.

  • Vanessa
    Vanessa Assistant Gardener

    Vanessa is a NW native – growing up in Bellevue, Seattle and now residing in Everett.  Although gardening was a personal passion for many years, it was just recently that she decided that a transition to the horticulture field was where she wanted to invest her time. She loves the amazing variety of colors, textures, smells, and properties of plants.  “How can you not love all of it…even weeding. There is just something so very zen about it.”   When not making the gardens beautiful, she loves to create stained glass, hiking, beach combing, and spending time with her hubby and pets.
