Gardening and observing nature has been a joyful, never-ending learning experience for me, and I enjoy sharing the knowledge that I have gained along the way.
As an educator, my goals are to help connect children and adults to the
natural world in a deeper way, with a holistic view of the plants,
insects, birds, microorganisms, and other delightful creatures that we share the earth
with. I believe this understanding and connection also opens the door for gardening recommendations and nature science to make perfect sense, no matter what age we are.
As a garden consultant and designer, my goals are to provide
ideas that help make your garden healthier, sustainable, a benefit to your life, and a benefit to the environment.
Also, to provide practical gardening skills that make maintenance time enjoyable and successful, and save you the time and expense of trial-and-error.
I consider success to be measured by my ability to give others the green light of positive encouragement, while helping them add more of nature's green light to their lives.
