About Us

Julie is the owner of Summerland Gardens. She started the nursery in her front yard and expanded and moved to an old Hookah Bar/Sandwich shop where she ran the nursery for 13 years. When urban renewal plans came for the property she moved the business to it’s current location and lived happily ever after. With a MS degree in Horticulture, Julie worked at various botanic gardens across the US. She was the Curator of the Tropical Plant collection at both Denver Botanic Gardens and the Atlanta Botanic Gardens. She was awarded a Fellowship through Chanticleer Gardens and had the opportunity to study tropical plants in their native land around the world. Her passion for plants all started with a half off plant at King Soopers. She is also a Colorado Nursery & Greenhouse Professional and the former president of the Garden Centers of Colorado.

 Anna Faye
Anna Faye joined Summerland Gardens in the spring of 2017. She developed her love for growing things after she inherited a few of her Grandmamma’s beloved plants in 2013. She joined the team full time in 2021 bringing her passion for plants and her small business marketing experience managing our social media and website presence. She calls half an acre in the mountains of Colorado home where she’s always learning to love the growing pains of having a passion for gardening in the front range. Additionally, she has a background in visual and performing arts and performs regularly around Colorado. If you love our newsletters and social posts, Anna Faye is the mastermind behind all this.
