About Rocky


Rocky Festa

Jennifer “Rocky” Festa honed her skills as our retail order coordinator during her previous career as the bookkeeper at Nirvana Candle Company. This gave Rocky a taste of what working in a small business entailed, and she was thrilled to the join Renee’s Garden team.

A native of Indiana, Rocky left her Hoosier home for California in 1988, but never left behind the love of flowers and gardening that her Mother passed down to her. Living in a manufactured home in Capitola, Rocky is learning all about small-space and container gardening, as well as how to adjust to a sometimes foggy sea-side climate.

Rocky lives with her partner Jean and their two cats, Raymond and Busby, who have their own popular blog. Rocky is an avid golfer and enjoys getting a round in every chance she gets. She also enjoys hiking, cooking and photography and is our Facebook Master Extraordinaire.
