The Team

Kevin Espiritu


Hi there – I’m Kevin. I got into gardening in early 2011 with my first hydroponics setup. I lived in a condo back then, so I didn’t have space for a big backyard soil garden.
I had to get creative.

Lorin Nielsen


I never stop learning new things, which just strengthens my love of gardening. It’s a combination of artistry meeting science, paired with a whole lot of healthy exercise. What more could you need?

Kris Moriarty

Special Projects Manager

There is nothing more satisfying than going to pick fresh produce and eggs from your backyard and whipping up a delicious meal… and I love growing food for my family and neighbors, too!

Jacques Lyakov

Garden Hermit

I hope to help more people experience what it is like to eat out of their gardens daily! Epic Gardening allows me to teach others the experience of what homegrown produce really tastes like.

Rachel Garcia

Succulent Fanatic

Rachel here! Even though my dad’s an avid gardener, I didn’t discover my love for it until I went to college. I took a landscape design course for an elective and was hooked – plants are amazing!

Elizabeth Cramer

Plant Lover

Elizabeth Cramer is a chef, plant lover, and potter. She loves teaching others how to cook and grow their own food.

I love working outdoors with people and plants, so working freelance in community and therapeutic horticulture is a dream come true.

My love for gardening was inevitable having been raised by two grandmothers with epically green thumbs.

Gardening is important because it not only provides healthy food, it helps her connect to nature and care for the land.

Chelsea Fuss

Floral Designer & Gardener

As a lifelong gardener, flowers and plants are also the focus of my work as a photographer, writer, and creator.

Kaleigh Brillon

Writer & Plant Lover

It wasn’t until a plant biology class in my second year of college that I became obsessive about plants.

Rebecca Hendricks

Master Gardener volunteer

One year, I decided to do some research to figure out how I could grow peppers on my apartment balcony, and it worked! I realized gardening is a skill you learn, not an innate talent you are born with.
