Liz Baloutine is a native Austinite, and true to form she's passionately traveled quite a few paths to get to Seedlings. From a Masters in Architecture, to Guatemala as an illustrator on an archaeological project, restaurants in Chicago, and eventually back to Austin where she later worked as an electrician!
One day it hit – gardening was it for her. She volunteered in any garden that would have her, soaked in every bit of information she could, and then began working for Glenn Cooper (formerly of TexZen Gardens) as the Maintenance Manager and Designer. Simultaneously, She designed and tended to a vegetable garden at Olivia Restaurant. And then came Seedlings Gardening! A company that now employs a small but powerful crew!
