Kamari's story

I, myself have 8 years of experience in the Food Services Industry, and from these experiences have gained the knowledge needed to produce high-quality food, as well as maintain and lead a commercial kitchen. On the other hand, Melanie has 15 years of experience in the Food Services Industry, and since 13 she has been practicing plant-based eating for the entirety of their life. Within our experiences, we gained knowledge across the board of management to prepare and are well versed in the industry. Both share a passion for entrepreneurship and combined equally bring creativity, passion, open-mindedness, and reliability to Sunflower Gardenz. What continues to motivate us is the success we have had since starting our business in March 2020 during quarantine. Once beginning in March, sales began to increase significantly in a matter of 2 weeks and have continued to flow in through word of mouth and social media.
