liken thyself unto a sunflower
— Owner/Grower, Heather Rietz

the Founder of Botanical Companions had an unimaginable sun-shiny sustained energy experience~

 

She often described feeling like a sunflower when working at an organic farm, bringing fresh-cut produce home for preparation each day. 


Founder's Background

Founder’s Background:

Heather's roots began with her Grandmother Ellen's example of a whole & living food lifestyle. Grandma helped many in her community while also sustained a hospital-free long-lived life.

Having an innate passion for nature and wellness, Heather completed a Bachelor's in Science in Biology and Chemistry in 2008 at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO. She volunteered, worked, and operated an organic farm. She worked as a plant biologist with National Park Service and Private Environmental Consulting Firms specializing in local native and non-native plants. Additionally, she worked in laboratory settings performing soil, water and plant quality analysis.

Personal experience with live foods and grandmother's inspiration grew into the desire to serve the community with living beneficial plant products, thus the creation of Botanical Companions.
