Hello, I am Iris Kedmi … I am:
My joy for creating Natural Health & Body Care Products with Pure & Simple ingredients stems from a deep appreciation for Mother Nature, Bee Bi-Products and the science of aromatherapy. My goal is to provide a way for my family, and yours, to reduce and limit day-to-day exposure to harsh and harmful chemicals.
For the past twenty years I have been the owner of LM Landscape Services based in Halifax Nova Scotia.
My expertise and experience as a certified journeyman Landscape horticulturist and businessman brings a myriad of knowledge to the new venture at Bee Happy Farm.
My passion for creativity in the three dimensional landscape and vast knowledge of the horticulture business has been a mainstay since 1984 (Bachelor of Design, NSCAD). I continue to upgrade my certifications in landscape design and my overall business training including classes in aromatherapy, and essential oil distillation.
All of my life I have had an interest in all things botanical, both cultivated plants and those growing in the wild. I spent many years living in the southwestern United States where I learned to grow and identify the native and cultivated plants of the region. In 1980 I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Botany and I worked in horticultural related fields for many years. Eventually I relocated to the east coast and for the past 10 years I have been exploring the flora and fauna of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. As I hiked the woods and fields of the island, I became curious about the native wild plants, which were so different from the ones growing in the desert Southwest, thus I began to research and identify the plants that I found in my travels around the island. In addition to identifying the native wild plants of the region, I have also researched the historic uses of these plants, concentrating on their medicinal qualities. The products developed at Bee Happy Farm by Iris Kedmi incorporate many of these plants in their formulations and it is their unique medicinal qualities that make her products so successful.
