KRISTIN - Owner
Hi! I'm Kristin. I moved to Seattle in 2003, and graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Environmental Studies. After wandering a few years, I discovered plants in a new way, quit everything, and went back to school for a degree in Horticulture at Edmonds Community College, and haven’t looked back. I am endlessly awe-struck by the plant kingdom and my curiosity is never satisfied! I’ve worked in almost all facets of the industry - grower, landscaper, retail garden center, and now nursery owner. I am so proud and honored to be working with this incredible team of driven and compassionate women.
My horticultural areas of interest are Integrated Pest Management, pest and disease ID, and plant health and nutrition.
JULI - Indoor Buyer and Landscape Designer
Hi everyone! I am a member of this fabulous team of plant nerds and very excited to have a part in growing this radical little nursery in Seattle. I have a particular passion for unique perennial edibles, herbs, and all things permaculture. I love being outside and working with plants all day, and I love collaborating with people to manifest their green garden dreams through landscape design or selecting the perfect plant! I am a mother of three awesome kids, love cats and chickens, and I make art, food, and laughter whenever I can.
NATASHA - Outdoor Buyer
Hola! A few words about me--
I have a passionflower propagation obsession, an impressive troll doll collection, wild juggling aspirations and often speak in Spanglish.
Whether it's dancing, noticing the magic of a flower or seeing a kind gesture offered between two creatures, I am constantly in awe of the beauty of life.
Having traveled and wandered for 4+ years, becoming known as slightly nomadic, I have surprised myself (and most friends and family) by deciding to call Seattle home again. This is largely, if not entirely, in part to a serendipitous day when I passed by Urban Earth, felt it calling out to me and pulling me in. I followed this tug and low and behold, Urban Earth is now my work, my family, my home and a stepping stone for exploring my passions. I could not be happier to have my days filled with plants, incredible coworkers, exciting conversations with customers and always discovering something new about our existence on planet earth. I encourage us all to take time to notice the little things, be curious, be kind, be weird and converse not just with humans, but with plants and animals--I guarantee that your eyes and heart will be overwhelmed by the magic and beauty that this existence offers us.
LISA - Administrative Lead
Hello hello! Seattle has been “home-for-now” since 2014 but my hearts home is stretched across this country~ shout out to MA, VT & NY! My first and forever love is integrated production systems (people, plants and animals working together in our food economy) bolstered by a degree in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Production from Green Mountain College in Vermont. I started as an intern with Urban Earth in May 2018 until the team offered me a more permanent position representing Urban Earth at the Fremont Sunday Market. We took on the endeavor as a means to increase visibility & marketing for the shop- so thanks for supporting us during the summer of 2018! These days, I take care of administrative tasks from the behind the scenes by coordinating logistical and procedural efforts… and occasionally putting together Kokedama with great delight!
NICOLE- Indoor Lead & Buyer
Hi! My name is Nicole. After moving and changing paths many times I feel at home here in Seattle and at Urban Earth Nursery. My degree is in architecture and landscape design and after pursuing construction and landscape maintenance for a few years I am excited to be on a different side of the plant industry.
I get my kicks from experimentation. I’ll throw anything into soil to see what happens. I enjoy tropical/succulent propagation, vegetable gardening, and fruit tree grafting. In addition to plants, I love drawing and cooking. My most recent creation was ginger pineapple lamb sliders. I didn’t grow all the ingredients, but someday I will!
CORYN- Marketing & Business Strategy
I started out as a loyal Urban Earth customer with a succulent propagation obsession. Now I get to work with these amazing ladies in the shop and do the nursery’s marketing plan. I love being surrounded by plants and I’m so excited to grow the Urban Earthlings community. This is an amazing place with great plants and even better people! We are so proud to be woman-owned and woman-run. Come check us out!
