Even before her baby was born, Kaylan navigated gardening with a baby. At first it was a whirlwind of emotions, both positive and negative. Today, she has managed to fill her garden with stimulating plants her child can enjoy as well.

Connect With Kaylan Segev:

Kaylan is a Bay Area native and budding gardener. Her passion for planting began when she started growing tomatoes in her studio apartment bathroom while living in San Francisco during shelter-in-place. Today, she gardens on 13,000 square feet of fertile land nestled in the hills of Oakland, CA (zone 10a), where she cultivates everything from native plants, vegetables, fruits, and bulbs, to medicinal and sensory plants in raised beds, grow bags, and in the ground. Her latest project, a dreamy chicken coop, is currently being constructed with chickens on the way in spring 2024.
