"Stems & Stone inside my home, so the world can never un-Earth me"
Greetings & Salutations!
My name is Reese, Plant Boss, Head Horti-Honey, Head Plant Mama and founder of Stems & Stone. I want to thank you so much for being here. As some of you know, S&S was birthed out of passion, love & necessity during a troubling time and major shift in our world.
My goal with this forum and online community, is to build a comradery & safe space for plant lovers, nature lovers, tree huggers, flower children, gypsies, fairies, unicorns--(I think you get the point) to come together to discuss plants, plant care and everything in between.
A little about me
I am a 30-something (almost 37 actually) creative, born and raised in Columbus Ohio. I have an extensive background in customer service (retail & call center) as a supervisor/manager & I've moonlighted over the years as a photographer, marketing manager, graphic designer, web designer, brand ambassador, runway model, visual artist, event host & spoken word poet. (Phew! IKR)
My love for plants began as a young girl watching my mother tend to her vegetable garden in old Reynoldsburg & my grandmother create magic in her front yard in our old neighborhood on the far east side of Columbus. My love affair with plants has come and gone, but over the years as I've researched and discovered ways to practice self-care to mind my mental and emotional health. In turn, I've embraced nature & metaphysical things to support my wellness rituals & practice. I have to say, it's paying off.
Beyond the fluff, I am a mother of 6 awesome young people that I adore and dabble in anything that allows me to use my hands to create. I aspire some day to build my own alternative home-preferably an Earth-Ship/shipping container house and one day build a village and working/living community of like minded people who want to keep nature and peace at the center of their lives both in the US and abroad.
I want to thank you all for coming along for the journey and look forward to chatting and exchanging with you. If you ever have any questions or concerns or want to connect on business, you can reach me at email@example.com
PEACE, LIGHT & PLANT LIFE
