Hello, My Flowers.
I actually can't take credit for that line. I used to follow this amazing cake decorator on Facebook who was known for creating these edible works of art with realistic looking piped flowers.
As a gardener and aspiring pastry chef, I was in awe. Unfortunately, the internet is a negative place and eventually the joy she felt in sharing her creations was crushed by people who wanted to insult and steal her work.
But there was something about the joy she experienced in sharing her work with those who were truly appreciative that inspired me to find my own way to bring a bright light to others.
It was around this same time that I really became passionate about organic gardening and regenerative agriculture. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that the resources and information were not readily available to those who needed it.
I wanted to make organic gardening easier for others. There is so much information available about conventional gardening that many gardeners don't realize there even is another way. Or they've been led to believe that organic doesn't work or isn't practical.
I truly believe that God has given us all of the tools necessary to produce food without the need for synthetic chemicals, but we need to allow that balanced ecosystem to exist. Birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects cannot help us in the garden if we do not provide them with a means to survive and thrive.
.. and so Kitchen Botanicals was born.
My name is Bonnie. Founder, owner, and currently only official employee here at Kitchen Botanicals. I am also a wife, mother, and wannabe farmer.
Kitchen Botanicals is a family business, and it wouldn't be here without the help and support of my husband and three kids. We own and operate a 5-acre homestead in Central Florida where we raise chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea fowl, rabbits, goats, pigs, and horses.
Our goal is to produce most of our own food as well as help provide food to our local community. Make organic gardening attainable for everyone through organically grown seedlings, heirloom and certified organic seeds, environmentally friendly gardening supplies, and organic methods for disease and pest control.

My love of gardening and being outdoors goes back to my earliest childhood memories. I am so excited that I now get to share this passion with all of you. I am available to help with your gardening or ordering questions. If I don't know the answer, I'll find someone who does. You can message me here on the website or through any of my social media channels.
