BEARFRUIT & GROW, LLC is a black owned company that opened for business on July 8, 2020 in Louisville, KY.
BEARFRUIT & GROW has a class A nursery license that allows the sale of annual and perennial edible plants; set to open in Spring 2021. This small-scale nursery will be jam packed with mostly heirloom, organic edible plant varieties that you may never see in your big box stores.
The company also promotes sustainability, self-sufficiency, NON-GMO, naturally grown produce/plants and advocates for food access in communities that historically experience food disparities and food insecurities.
The company vision was created almost 2 years ago when the owner saw there was a need for a garden coach in the community, virtually and in real time. Coaching services are now available! E-mail your coach directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
