Eko and Kelly Chashai have been growing together for 20 years. Travelling the world while farming and gardening brought them to Victoria. While raising two children, they built Down To Earth, developing the nursery while installing landscapes and maintaining commercial properties. Their dedication and passion for what they do is apparent in all they create together.
