Dream Team

Mindy Schwartz


Mindy started gardening when she was 10.  By high school she was doing everything organically.  These days, her farming days are few, as she spends most of her time behind her computer focused on the backend systems and development work for the growing business.  It just so happens that, unlike most people, Mindy loves accounting (but not as much as gardening!). 

When she's not at her desk or meeting with prospective customers, vendors and community partners, she's dreaming about what could be.  In her mind... it's hardly just begun.

Danielle Marvit

Danielle's love of farming has been cultivated for close to 20 years. She has worked on farms that span everything from organic vegetable production to small scale dairy to therapeutic agriculture. Her specialty has always been growing strong healthy seedlings and teaching folks how to grow their own food. She is passionate about growing and using medicinal herbs, creating beautiful healing spaces, planting habitat for beneficial insects, preserving the seasonal harvest and discovering the magic of natural dyes. She is looking forward to growing Garden Dreams and sharing its future with everyone who dreams as big as she does!
