We're on a mission to educate and inspire more people to interact with nature and their communities to enhance their health, connectivity and joy!

 

Whether helping a mom implement garden based home school lessons, working with educators to create outdoor laboratories, coaching homeowners on how to grow their dreamscape, or hosting garden tours for some of the most iconic gardens and scenic places throughout the land, I love connecting with people and helping to foster deeper understandings of the world around us.
