About

My name is Calli and I am a wife, mother and passionate horticulturist.  I was inspired to start Sweet Pea’s Garden after the birth of our daughter Penelope in 2012.  My career in Horticulture has led me in many different directions over the years.  I have had the chance to work at some really great places which have shaped my growing experience. I started at an organic herb farm, then worked at a wholesale tree farm and have grown everything from vegetables, annuals and perennials to trees and shrubs at a retail garden center.  Most recently I managed the perennial program at a wholesale greenhouse here in Palisade. Although I love growing flowers, my heart and the health of my family has driven me to grow more of the food my family eats. I am devoted to growing and eating quality, homegrown food at our family table.
