- Your home should be a place of comfort and beauty. You don't need much to make this a reality.
- Shopping for gifts should be fun & inspiring... not the thing you dread because you have no time.
- You need more plants! They clean the air, they calm your mind, and they make your life more beautiful.

About the Owner
Bay Area native Brandi Chalker is a former black-thumb, now Crazy Plant Lady, who is passionate about sharing her love of plants.
Brandi's experience in retail and in plant design make her uniquely suited to run Radish. In 2010, she opened Urban Bazaar, a Fair Trade & locally handmade gift shop in San Francisco. While at Urban Bazaar, she discovered a love for succulents after being surprised that she was able to keep them alive, and she began selling terrariums and teaching workshops at the store. She opened a succulent nursery in the store's backyard and created San Francisco's first DIY succulent planting station, called The Succulent Bar.
She left Urban Bazaar in 2012 to launch Sunshine & Succulents, through which she teaches creative botanical workshops. Her public workshops, which are taught in San Francisco, Sonoma, and Petaluma include Succulent Terrariums, Macrame Plant Hangers, and Natural Sugar Scrubs. She also teaches corporate team building workshops for clients such as Facebook, Google, Instagram, and AirBnB.
In 2015, Brandi, her husband, and their dog moved from San Francisco to Petaluma, where Brandi was born. Looking to put down roots again with a brick and mortar space for her business, Brandi jumped at the opportunity to take ownership of Radish. She's excited to bring something a little different to Petaluma, and loves hearing her customers exclaim, "I wish my house looked like this!" when they walk into the store for the first time.
