Nature. Is. Transformative. And we share a common thread…Breath. 🌱

Whether or not you’ve experienced gardening, most of us can agree that exposure to nature changes our pace and our physical health. Our shoulders quite literally drop when staring at the ocean or breathing in the woods… We inhale and exhale more fully when in nature. 

Watching the smiles on your faces, and the energy change in your spaces during the first year of Broadway Botanist has been a dream come true! The roots we’ve planted together have been sprouting branches of green, breath, and calm all over New York City! 

Now… it’s time to build a space for the community. Our space.

The Broadway Botanist greenhouse is a place to grow, to gather, and to dream. 


A Destination to Dream:

Let’s face it, New York City is chaotic. It’s hard to find a quiet & inspiring place to dream, to reflect, and to reignite your creativity. Full of sunshine, nature, and located in beautiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the Broadway Botanist Greenhouse is a destination to escape the daily grind, have a cup of tea, and take some time to dream…


A Place to Gather, Learn, and Share:

I’m always in awe of the magic that happens when we bring together a group of incredible people. That’s why one of the biggest aspects of the Greenhouse will be Workshops & Experiences: 

 Plant Maintenance - learn how to maintain & propagate your plants

 Plant Happy Hour - share in a botanical cocktail

 Meditation and Mindfulness - breathe, connect, and rejuvenate


Plant Hotel:

Jumpin' out of town for a few weeks or months for a new job, tour, or perhaps a tropical vacation? 

No need to worry about who is going to take care of your plants! Bring them to the greenhouse and we’ll love them like our own until you return! 


Plant-Care Center

If your plants aren’t doing well, we can come treat your plant and offer some ideas on how best to move forward. Or just bring them to the Greenhouse! Drenched in sun and surrounded by green friends, we’ll nurse them back to health for you! 


Pop Up Shop

A few times a month we'll have open shop hours.  Come shop for a new friend and enjoy a cup of tea!


Design Workshop

A painter starts with a canvas. A writer with a blank page. A dancer with a space to move in . . . 

Here at the Greenhouse, designing plants begins with bright open space, healthy soil, and the dreams of each Broadway Botanist client. 

The response to adding nature and breath has been beautifully overwhelming. The designs have gotten bigger, the requests larger, and two months ago, my living room looked like this… 

Plants are like people. We both need sunshine, water, love, and room to grow … which is exactly what this Greenhouse is for! 


How You Can Help

The startup costs for a business and new space are enormous:   rent, legal fees, security deposit, insurance, dirt, things to clean up the dirt, and so much more! 

My plant squad and I need your help to plant these roots and get the Greenhouse up and running.  There are tons of fun rewards and opportunities to help this space grow…

Plants adapt just as we must, and they quietly help us in ways we don’t even realize. They remind us that we can’t do it all alone and that community and relationships are what keep us going.  Ultimately, this space is for you, the community.   I hope you’ll come share it with us..

Risks and challenges

Every plant makes the world a greener, fresher, and more caring place. On rare occasions a plant is beyond rescue. Rather than approach this type of loss as a failure, we approach it as an opportunity to build a deeper relationship with our surroundings.
