Jessi Bloom – Owner, Lead Designer/Consultant Jessi is a Pacific NW native and comes from a strong background of horticulture and environmental science. 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 a business in the green industry to fill a niche for organic and ecological landscaping. Her leadership combined with her artistic design talents have brought NW Bloom numerous environmental awards. She is passionate about animals, permaculture and making functional gardens beautiful. Jessi is now a best-selling author with her new book published by Timber Press 2012 and working on her second book with them.

This excitable Staffy Bull Terrier pup greets guests enthusiastically when they visit the office. He is also known as the resident foot warmer and has many jobs around the farm, but his favorite job (by far) is being a snuggle bug. He loves to chase off pesky garden rodents, insects, frisbees and his tail in his spare time.
Our resident Easter Egger hen does much more than lay green eggs! She keeps the free range flock in check and makes sure they deposit manure where it is needed most. She has a rich history in the barnyard where she maintains relationships with all of the other animals, supervises the turning of the compost and has a regular pest management routine. Her slight hobble makes her recognizable amongst the other birds and she is the first to be of service the minute you step into the garden.
