Steph Kantorski – Founder and Living Wall Designer

It all started with a crazy obsession for house plants and urban farming that grew into lots of adventures. A proud graduate of the Garden for the Environment GetUp! garden educator program, Steph went on to study horticulture at City College of San Francisco. In 2013, she also become a docent and then a horticulture volunteer at the Conservatory of Flowers where she is the resident ‘Wall Lady’. Other recent projects include an exterior shade wall on the bookstore at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. When not installing or tending to walls around the city, she’s taming all the plants growing up her own walls.
