Garden Society began as a personal mission to find healthy ways to bring balance to our busy lives. We are a medical cannabis company focused on confections that merge insatiable flavors, responsibly sourced ingredients and high-quality cannabis. Along the way, we’re out to help redefine the social acceptance of our industry.
Our founder's own need to explore non-traditional ways of managing the pain and stress of multiple hip surgeries - along with a hectic and busy corporate career – inspired her to begin Garden Society. She quickly realized the holistic benefits of cannabis as a means of providing a better quality of life without prescription drugs, and in doing so found an opportunity to fill a void in the market with low dose edibles that highlight the renowned food culture of Sonoma County.
During a ten-year career in corporate America, and all the stress of running a global business and traveling around the world, I turned to cannabis to help me find relief. While founding my first business, I realized the special marriage I had between my passion for cannabis, my chemical engineer education, and my business skills. It wasn’t long after this realization, I set out to found my second company, Garden Society, with the goal to create delicious and responsible products to help like-minded women deal with the rigors of our lives.
Surrounded by brave and entrepreneurial women my entire life and raised predominately by a single mother, I can’t express how incredibly proud I am to be a part of the Garden Society mission. My experience working for multi-national banks and beverage companies numbed me to the effects that self-medicating with alcohol and medication has on our society and our wellbeing. Offering a healthier choice to the alternative and enhancing women’s health and lives is our number one goal at Garden Society and I proudly share our products with anyone I love.
My love for the outdoors, entertaining and telling a good story led me to the wine industry in Sonoma County ten years ago. As I loved telling the story of wine - from vine to glass - I am passionate about telling the Garden Society story, from seed to delectable confection. As a busy, working mom and wife to a cancer survivor, I know the positive therapeutic impact low-dose edible cannabis can have on the mind, body and soul.
Shine On Farms is a biodynamic outdoor cannabis farm that is located in the majestic Anderson Valley. We grow our cannabis using the beauty of the sun and sky with love and nature.
