Emily has spent most of her life here in Pennsylvania, but her childhood was spent in New Mexico. “My mother was the person to first expose me to the world of gardening. With a seemingly constant season of drought, we were restricted to watering once a week. I recall taking showers with a bucket to catch any spare water to help my mother’s struggling vegetable garden. You could say I was exposed to organic growing at an early age, eating cherries from a neighbor’s tree.”

Katie was raised in Washington state, surrounded by so much natural beauty, including colorful wildflowers, snow-capped mountains, clear rivers, rushing waterfalls, evergreen trees, luscious rainforests, and the majestic ocean. “All of these elements of the beauty of the earth and the vastness of ecology left an impression in my subconscious when I was very young!” says Katie.
