WHO WE ARE
Get To Know Us
We are a father – daughter team who are both passionate about plants, the green industry, sports and fitness (which is a whole different story). We started RightPlantz to help gardeners and green industry professionals be more successful.
Co-Founder, Plant Geek, Daughter
Tara has been gardening as long as she could walk, she was often found helping her dad in the garden. Her love of plants led her to study Landscape Architecture at Virginia Tech (go Hokies!). While in college, she interned at both the Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina, and the Washington National Cathedral Bishop’s Garden in Washington, DC. In her spare time, Tara is an avid runner and is training for her first marathon.
