'BRINGING ANY SPACE TO LIFE' SINCE 2014
THE URBAN BOTANIST WAS BORN
The Urban Botanist was created from one of those once in a lifetime moments. Lucy Serafi, founder of the company found herself standing in her Auntie’s kitchen in Vancouver. This was at a time when one world was falling apart-Lucy had recently separated from her husband and father of her two children. As if by fate, Lucy fell in love with a terrarium hanging in her Aunties home, within minutes Lucy identified a gap in the UK market and within minutes The Urban Botanist was born!
With Lucy’s passion, vision, artistic flair and perhaps her strongest attribute sheer determination, Lucy was able to use this difficult period in her life as a platform to launch her own company and is now a proud and successful single mummy and entrepreneur.
Like with any small business we've had our ups and downs. Jim, Lucy's brother and co-owner has been of huge support launching the business and getting it to where is now. We are now in to year 4 of trading and have invested in renting our own premises. Locating the correct environment for our plants to bloom with a little natural sunlight and warehouse space for stock storage and room to create the product within a close vicinity to the children schools proved difficult but we have found the perfect spot! During busy periods we provide employment opportunities to other working mummies. And in 2017 Lindsey Caldwell a further single mother and a friend, has come on board as a partner and creative director.
