A little about our "gardening guru" -- Stephanie Jones:
Stephanie has been with Choices Natural Market for 9 years, and is the store's General Manager. Since childhood, she has had a love of all things green and growing, and a passion for plants that runs deep in her DNA. In 2007, Stephanie earned her BA in Holistics - Horticulture Therapy from Union Institute & University. Throughout her education, and much to her family's delight, she leveraged her need for an interactive thesis to convert much of the family's backyard into a gardener's paradise. Every year of gardening since has brought more experiences and experiments in the garden.
