About Besa

My Story


I'm a native garden specialist with over 15 years experience gardening with native plants. After receiving my bachelors degree in Environmental Studies I went on to study horticulture. I first started work in plant conservation at Missouri Botanical Garden in 2003 but quickly transferred to Shaw Nature Reserve to work in native plant horticulture until 2016. I recently decided to branch off on my own and I'm very new to running my own business.
