Meet Your Coach

LeTicia was born and raised in the bluegrass state of Kentucky and still resides there. As a child, she remembers doing chores on her grandparents farm, paylake, and family-owned grocery store. As an adult, vegetable and herb gardening has become a passion of hers.

 

KNOWLEDGE together with APPLICATION is POWER and LeTicia seeks to EMPOWER those of all ages to grow their own food and herbs. Service has always been a responsibility to LeTicia. “It’s important to give, give, give, not  just take, take, take. I promise you, when you make a decision to serve, it will come back to you 10 fold! You will live better, treat people better, do better, feel better, and grow as a person. I have! ”

LeTicia graduated in 2008 from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a concentration in Social Sciences. Then went on to complete graduate school at her alma mater in 2011 with a Master of Science in Social Work from the Kent School. 

Where we grow

Bearfruit & Grow farms vegetables and herbs on less than a quarter acre of land in Southwest Louisville, Kentucky.  We grow everything using natural methods, using non-GMO seeds.

We grow food in the ground, raised beds, all sorts of containers, indoors and our nursery propagation greenhouse! These crops are a staple on the farm because we love growing them and they are yummy!

Okra, tomatoes, beans, carrots, microgreens, collards, mustards, lettuce, onions, peppers, flowers (yes, flowers are yummy too!), herbs (i.e. rosemary, parsley, mint, cilantro, basil, sage). 

The picture to the right is of volunteers who came to help erect the greenhouse.
