Jeremy Ohmes believes gardens can be meaningful spaces for healing and connection. After acquiring a certificate in Horticultural Therapy from the Chicago Botanic Garden in 2018, Jeremy started Wild World Gardens to share his love of gardening with others and to help them transform their landscapes into beautiful and beneficial ecosystems filled with food, medicine, and connections to local wildlife.
Andrew Hedman, Good Steward Ecoscapes
Andrew has been passionate about wildlife and conservation since he was a small child. As a retail store manager at Aquascape, Inc (North America’s largest manufacturer of pond and water feature products), he learned how beneficial naturally-filtered water features are for local ecosystems. Inspired by the work of Doug Tallamy, he started his own landscaping company, Good Steward Ecoscapes, where he utilizes native plants in all landscaping installations.
