ABOUT THE OWNER
Tiffany Faulstich grew up in the Salinas Valley, “the lettuce bowl of the world,” surrounded by agriculture. She knew she loved plants, but for her, the garden was a more meaningful place than a field of romaine. She spent time in her grandparents gardens, helping them plant, harvest, can and preserve crops, tend heirloom fuchsias and hydrangeas.
She pursued a degree in Ornamental Horticulture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and has now been a landscape contractor and involved in the horticulture industry in California for 25 years. Tiffany has enhanced her knowledge, passion for plants and sustainability by earning several industry accepted certifications. She has also been teaching horticulture to University and Community College students for 10 years.
