About us: Emilee & Bonnie
The Plant Connector, co-founded by Emilee and Bonnie in 2020, is driven by a shared passion for fostering a sense of community and a mission to spread the joy of plants. Emilee brings her expertise in landscape urbanism to the venture, having relocated to the Berkshires in 2017. Her creative energy is a driving force behind the organization. On the other hand, Bonnie, a longtime resident of the Berkshires with 30 years of experience in owning small businesses, manages the financial and numerical aspects of the business, making them a well-balanced team. Their journey began when they crossed paths at Jacobs Pillow, where they formed a deep connection rooted in their shared love for nature.
