Salisbury is home to some of the busiest bodies around and Kim is no exception. She accomplishes more in the wee hours of the morning than most people do by the end of the day. Kim has the kind of laughter that makes a person radiate from the inside out, and you’re sure hear that joyful sound when she’s around – even if you’re at opposite ends of the greenhouse. Workshops are never short of imagination with Kim behind the helm, she steers her creative ship in your direction and makes sure everyone is on board. Having a flair for helping people find their inner creative genius, means you’re sure to leave her presence feeling inspired and motivated. If you’re ever in doubt of Kim’s mad gardening skills, join a workshop to see her in action or check out the incredible how-to’s she’s masterfully created on our website.

Besides admiring the plants, I can be found at Salisbury…
all things plant related. If I am not setting up displays, or tending to the wide variety of plants we carry, I can be found helping customers or ordering plants / miniature garden hardware. The one thing that I do love is teaching people during our workshops, both on and off site. There is nothing like watching people learn about all the amazing ways plants can be incorporated into their lives. Their smiles and gratitude make my day.

My Favourite plant is…
Theobrama cacao … aka Cocoa Tree

What I love most about gardening is…
the absolute soul stillness.  No phones, no TV’s or computers, no rushing here and there,  just you and all that green space … doesn’t get any better.

I grew up in… Northern Ontario and my fondest memories of there will always be… of the multitudes of lakes. I would spend from dawn to dusk windsurfing and kayaking spring to fall and then when winter hit I was iceboarding with my windsurfer. Now that I live in the west I can’t wait to try snow kayaking down a snowy mountain slope.

If I had no limitations, I would be working as an…
If I have to pick one thing out of the multitude of fun things I would love to try, I would say…. competitive jousting.  Yup …. way to0 crazy but this is on my bucket list.

Something a little less crazy and more meaningful to me would be to be a mindset coach. I am fascinated with our potential as a species and all that the mind can achieve. We have so much potential if we have the right kind of mindset.

My all time favourite movie is…
“The Shining”

The book I could read again and again is…
“Aleph” by Paulo Coelho

My life motto is…
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their head in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let the spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.”
