Ferns & Foliage
Ferns & Foliage launched in the summer of 2020. It is a small Black owned business that grew organically from a challenge and desire to help others. After moving into a new home the Lex-Ham neighborhood of St. Paul, Tasha realized that much of the current landscape was, or eventually would be, predominately in shade. Although years of gardening cultivated a deep passion for plants and garden design, she had little experience with shaded landscapes. Tasha set about researching and sought local inspiration. A common theme quickly revealed itself. Most homeowners tend to use a small handful of very common shade plants. Shaded spaces, she discovered, often had a similar look and feel. It seemed like shade landscapes could offer something more unique.

Yellowbird Coffee Bar
Yellowbird coffee bar got its name from a little yellow bird that kept vigil, and often returned for visits, during the final days of the life of John’s father, Roger Peterson. John wanted to share the warm memories of family and home when he envisioned yellowbird – a place where you could go at any time to just hang out, to talk, to work, to eat, to bond.
John and his two kids live in the neighborhood, just steps from yellowbird’s space. In their 15+ years here, he has always wanted a place he could walk to, to unwind from the day, to gather with friends, and to propel him along on his journey. After a number of life-altering events encouraged some reprioritizations, JP decided to find work that nurtured his soul – and yellowbird coffee bar was born.
We hope that you pursue your dreams with a cup of coffee and something to eat from yellowbird!
Fun fact: Our Lex-Ham offices are in the lower level of Yellowbird Coffee Bar, and they are a long-time supporter of Lex-Ham.
