about us

sticking up for life & norman’s natives

sticking up for life was started in 2014 (under the name chicken little cocoa) by me, Denise. 

sticking up for life

I started this site as a way to share our gardening experiences and inspire others. 

Along the way, I stumbled into marketing, photography and the dream of working from home.

norman's natives

in 2019, I teamed up with norman from norman’s natives, who is a native florida plant expert with a business mindset.
