We are a group of nature loving folk that came together in search of more.

"It’s funny how you find your people along the way. I’ve learned a strong team is not made up of people that can all do the same things. Instead, it's made up of different people that have different skill sets and in the end, make each other stronger. Each one of these special people brings something unique to our garden story. I cherish our time together and am so proud of what we have accomplished and grown into."

— A personal note from our Owner and Founder, Tanya Bartels

Meet Gabriela
Head of Operations and lead Floral Designer

A Golden Gardener that is leading with her heart and her hands. Her dedication, ability to adapt, and her raw talent have allowed us to grow and experience so many different aspects of our garden life. Gabriela knows how to follow through and keeps this business running. Her exceptional merchandising skills keep the shop and garden looking strong while her beautiful floral designs fill our greenhouse with color and texture. 

Meet Gia
Graphic Designer, Photographer and the most logical of us all

Clever as can be, this Golden Gardener has been with us almost from the beginning. She designed our iconic logo, the many graphics you see today, and our beautiful website. Her talents extend beyond the computer and also take us behind the camera. Many of our marketing photos are captured by this multifaceted creative soul. We are so lucky to be working with such a dynamic person!

Meet Diana
Lead Writer, Editor and so much more

Not sure where to start with this special Golden Gardener. She joined the team to help us write the first issue of In Season Magazine and we haven't let her go since. She has it all! A writer, editor, poet and artist. With a big heart she continues to be an inspiration and crucial support system for us and our golden adventures. Her talents grace us season after season and we are so honored to have her along for the ride.

Meet Megumi
Plant Care and Maintenance Supervisor

This is a Golden Gardener the plants can really rely on. They trust her and she knows how to keep them healthy and feeling happy. The shop and garden is beaming because of her care. She is also on the road helping us maintain a number of different projects and offices full of greenery. Meg’s fun personality, hard work ethic, and drive to learn more are truly infectious and so inspiring to be around.

Meet Seth
Our catch-all, get-it-done kind of guy

This Golden Gardener can get the job done, and most of the time, with a great big smile. 

A crucial part of our garden life, Seth has been through it all, packing and unpacking the trucks, landscaping, installations, weekly maintenance, deliveries, nursing plants and so so much more. Other than being an extremely supportive partner, his attention to detail and the heart he puts in his work is unmatchable. For the most part, when I leave a trail of soil he is right there cleaning up behind me. We appreciate him and his margaritas on Fridays!
