Megan Cain has worked a variety of jobs since college, but her childhood connection to plants and nature never left her. Megan was born and raised in Raleigh, NC in a house full of exotic plants, and her parents used the plants to instill a sense of responsibility and empathy with living things in Megan and her brother. It wasn't until Megan, well into her career, realized that she could be doing a lot more with her skills and talents, and decided to try her hand at selling handmade terrariums. Read about how she turned this side-business into both a career and a legacy for her growing family.
