The roots of Red Wagon Plants run deep....
Julie, the owner, was born in France, a country where they take their kitchen gardens seriously and simultaneously take them for granted; they are simply a part of life. When Julie moved as a child with her family to Vermont, gardens always helped ground her and made her feel at home. When traveling as a teenager and a young adult, or even while she had a farm to tend in her twenties, gardens of all kinds drew her in for a closer look and connection.
Julie grows plants because she loves them and they speak to her. This sensitivity paired with her many years as a vegetable and herb farmer, including in Burlington's Intervale, provides her with an expertise that is invaluable to her customers, her growing business, and to her employees.
An integral part of growing the healthiest, happiest plants possible for Vermonters' kitchen gardens is growing healthy and happy human members of Team Red Wagon. For all of its eleven years, Red Wagon Plants has worked hard to create a work place that is full of vibrant energy; the plants absorb the love and positivity that the staff brings to them and each other every season. Respect for and cultivation of Team Red Wagon is all an inextricable and beautiful part of the growing process and of the business itself.
