Benj Meeks

Landscaping Division Manager

Benj is our field marshal when it comes to the landscaping side of Seeds of Change. He is the one who is actively leading and working alongside the landscaping crew in creating and maintaining beautiful landscapes. Many of the amazing landscapes that Seeds of Change has been a part of have been under his leadership. Benj has been working with Seeds of Change since the beginning of the 2017 season.

Benj hails from Jellico, TN but moved to Knoxville for undergrad at the University of Tennessee. After graduating with a degree in Plant Sciences, Benj has decided to stay in Knoxville to work with the Seeds of Change team as he deeply believes in the mission and core purpose of Seeds of Change.

Benj is also our resident plant whisperer. If you want to know anything about plants, Benj is your guy. He can tell your soil pH (within percentage points) and soil type just by tasting it, talk about dedication! Along with his love for plant-life, Benj enjoys God’s beautiful creation of nature, is an avid laugher, and is a piano virtuoso.

In five years, Benj’s dream is to have launched his own edible landscaping business starting in the Knoxville area. He wants to broaden the landscaping pallet toward more dual purpose plants that are both fruitful and beautiful.

Our three words:
Benj is humble.
Benj is joyful.
Benj is compassionate.
