A Passion for Gardening
Left to my own devices, I could garden all day and even into the night. I can always find something creative, interesting and fun to do.
My passion for gardening began in my apartment in NYC where I propagated my houseplants into a forest. I started my practice of growing edibles organically 35 years ago at my first home in Chicago. My love of gardening blossomed into a large and productive vegetable garden business when I moved to California 24 years ago. Now I could garden every day!!! The bounty from my vegetable gardens could feed a small village.
I often consult with homeowners to give their gardens a Fresh Look. More recently I have offered my expertise to people who want to get their garden in shape before they put their home up for sale. Garden Staging was officially added to my business of Edible Gardens and Consulting.
My goal is to design spaces that lure you into the garden.
- Bring the garden inside by having a beautiful view from each window
- Create a space abundant with edibles that does not look like a farm
- Entice a buyer up the front walkway to explore the potential of their new home
I treat each person’s garden as if it were my own, giving the finest attention to detail possible.
