A little bit about us...
We believe in doing things we will be proud of.
Check out our team:
Cara Mullen & Craig Fischman
Cara was first inspired to working with plants by her grandmother, with whom she spent a number of hours helping tend to her gardens. Cara received her bachelors degree in biology from Indiana University, which has served as a base of knowledge for her plant science interest. She remains equally adept behind the microscope, as digging in the dirt. Her love for education led to obtaining a horticulture degree from Johnson County Community College. While working toward her degree, Cara founded Flower Garden Transformations LLC, a Kansas City certified minority business, specializing in landscape design and installation.
Previously, Craig enjoyed a career in commercial real estate and banking for over 25 years. Craig’s knowledge and interest in plants began while working as a commercial property manager, during which time, he held the prestigious Certified Property Manager designation for 10 years.
Cody is one of our growers providing our herb and vegetable plants. In the off-season, Cody is a chef and server for one of Kansas City’s most prestigious catering companies. As a grower and a chef, Cody has a unique perspective into the herbs and vegetable plants.
Nick is one of our growers providing tomato plants. Nick is nearing completion of his horticulture degree from Johnson County Community College. Nick is an integral part of the landscape design and installation functions for the greenhouse.
Elizabeth "Libby" Moore
Libby is one of our designers, assembling tropical plant arrangements and designing Christmas wreaths. In addition to her eye for design, we are proud of Libby for being a full-time teacher in the Kansas City school district.
It was over 3 decades ago that Angelo and his wife Mary started Angelo’s Nursery on this site. Angelo’s love for plants and people made his nursery the place to go for quality and service. Although now retired, Angelo still frequents the greenhouse to catch up with long-time customers and spend time with the plants (he even told us he sees plants in his dreams). We have been honored to continue the business in Angelo’s footsteps.
