Jessica started HPC in 2020 as a home-based passion project. She had the dream and planned in 2019, and just before launching the business Covid hit. After starting by selling online HPC shifted into pop-up events in a converted school bus. By the end of 2020, Jessica expanded into a brick and mortar store in the Avondale neighborhood of Birmingham.
Jessica lives in Birmingham with her husband and pet cat and dog. When not working, she spends time riding her moped around the city, spending time outdoors, attending live concerts, and visiting local breweries.

Abigail, Shop Associate
Abigail grew up in Albertville, AL and currently pursuing a degree in Social Work and Human Rights. In her free time, you can find her reading, painting, hiking, knitting, and caring for her plants!
She started getting into plants because of how much joy they gave her. Each plant has it’s own personality, as well as it’s own strengths and weaknesses. They are all so uniquely themselves and beautiful in their own way, just like people! Plants remind her that life gives us beautiful things, we just have to take the time to appreciate them.
