What Garden Clubs have to say:

Emily was one of the most engaging speakers we have had at the Orcas Island Garden Club.  She answered questions throughout her presentation to directly address members problems and concerns making her lecture more personal.  We look forward to having her back very soon on a different topic.

What Consultation Clients Have to Say

Emily's the best! She really listens to my ideas, questions, and concerns and shapes them into a cohesive plan. I love that her plans are organized into chunks that I can tackle bit by bit. Her approach allows me to enjoy the gardening process and not feel overwhelmed, yet I can see steady progress with each phase. Emily really understands that my garden is for living with kids and dogs, but that I want it to be beautiful too.
Jane Witmer, client since 2002

Emily was a great find for us - what a pleasure to work with. We were particularly interested in working with someone who was well versed in organic gardening, and Emily offered us a wealth of knowledge. She took us through our garden, made specific suggestions, drew up detailed plans, and gave us the concrete information and help that we had been looking for with a wonderful enthusiasm and good natured-ness. We continue to contact her for advice on various gardening related issues, and whenever anyone asks us for a referral for garden design help, we jump at the chance to pass on her name.
David Lerner and Eva Pannabecker, clients since 2003

We worked together, Emily teaching as we went along. The quality of her service went beyond the care of plants, pruning, and designing. Supported by her years of experience in construction, she noticed and solved, quickly and inexpensively, two potentially serious problems, one for which I had consulted other professionals without success.

What Youth Education Clients Have to Say

Many gardeners do good work with youth --but Emily Bishton stands out for her remarkable combination of enthusiasm and imaginative creation. She's taught me that every corner of a children's garden holds precious discovery opportunities, and she develops gardens within gardens, the spaces transformed into spots that fit a child's reality, not an adult's idea of a child's reality.
