VERMICOMPOSTING

Vermicomposting, or worm composting, turns kitchen scraps and other green waste into a rich, dark soil that smells like earth and feels like magic. Made of almost pure worm castings, it’s a sort of super compost. Not only is it rich in nutrients but it’s also loaded with the microorganisms that create and maintain healthy soil."

GARDENING WITH AIR PLANTS

"Tillandsia is the largest genus in the bromeliad family, accounting for approximately 550 of the over 2,500 species of bromeliads. They are native to the warmer climates of the Americas. Commonly known as air plants, they are found from jungle to rain forest to arid desert environments – from sea level to high mountain regions."  

Jessica is a biology and chemistry student at Nipissing University in North Bay where she is focused on plant science.  As a result she is very knowledgeable in growing and caring for Tillandsia (air plants).  She would welcome any questions that you may have on this topic.  Through her business - NORTHERN AIR PLANTS - Jessica provides customers with healthy plants, terrariums to suit their tastes, and ongoing help in caring for their plant. 
"Dream in Green" is more than just a business motto:  it's how she lives her life.
