WestWind Succulents is a small succulent nursery and design company based in Lafayette, California. WestWind Succulents started in 2017 when Jennifer Ahlstrand, a sculptor and painter, began growing succulents on the roof of her husband’s furniture studio in West Oakland. Despite the challenges of scorching sunlight and intense winds coming off of the bay, Jennifer’s succulent collection thrived and expanded. Jennifer began arranging her succulents in found and up-cylced containers, allowing her to pair her loves of collecting and visual composition. She is now growing her succulent babies in the hills of Lafayette. She cultivates over 50 different species of succulents including Aeoniums, Aloe, Echeverias, Kalanchoes and more.
