About the event
Using permaculture, ecological design and sustainable construction, horticulturist Jessi Bloom of NW Bloom Ecological Services aims to integrate people and the land by helping participants create highly functional and beautiful outdoor spaces. Join us as we welcome Jessi's passion and mission to preserve the natural ecological balance in the great Pacific Northwest (and beyond) and to ensure a healthy, regenerative living environment for generations to come by showing you ethical sustainable gardening practices by creating edible landscapes for both homeowners and wildlife. These spaces for vegetable, herb and berry gardening allow clients to enjoy food grown from their own soil and by incorporating specific plant communities, participants will learn how to attract various types of native wildlife. Jessi was born and raised in the PNW and has a strong background of horticulture and environmental sciences. Her early experience ranged in project management, from organizing restoration projects with community volunteers, to high-end residential and commercial landscape design/build. In early 2000, she decided to start an ethical business in the green industry to fill a niche for organic and ecological landscaping. Her leadership combined with her artistic design talents have brought N.W. Bloom numerous environmental awards. She is passionate about animals, permaculture and making functional gardens beautiful.
