I grew up gardening in Spokane, Washington. I lived in New Mexico making films and puppet shows for 8 years before I moved with ten of my favorite house plants to Minneapolis in 2010. I’m the owner of Curl Power Salon, and a full time curly hair stylist. I live with my wife Steph and our chickens, cats and dog in the heart of south Minneapolis’s uprising. Plants, curls, art, and stories are so important to me and I want to share my passion and the fun of growing things. I believe we can fuel the revolution with positivity through radical self love, creative expression and more growing of interconnected community and, of course, plants!
I started gardening when I was 8 years old and have enjoyed playing in the dirt my whole life. I have certificates in Plant Science and Soil Science and have approximately 32 houseplants alive and thriving in my house. I like sharing my knowledge with people who are sure that they can't grow anything. My most favorite houseplant is the ZZ plant. I like how the new leaves unfurl. My favorite outdoor plant (today) is Penstemon. Tomorrow, it will be something else. - Joanne
