MEET THE TEAM
Certified in Horticultural Therapy by the New York Botanical Garden, Zack began his career in the plant kingdom by providing gardening therapy in the Rikers Island jail facility for several years. In 2015 he founded a NYC based urban gardening company, Isaiah's Figtree, with a mission to green up the concrete jungle and connect people to nature in creative ways. Seeking sustainably sourced plants and materials and seeing the need for more conscious suppliers, Plant Life Apothecary came to be.
A homeschooling mom, certified community birth worker and lactation counselor, Bird is a passionate advocate for self-sufficiency and community building. She is dedicated to helping women recognize the power of their self-sovereignty, while encouraging the cooperative sharing of knowledge and resources to promote growth and hope for future generations.
