I offer gardening consultation services for aspiring and novice gardeners. If you are fairly confident but have questions, or if you think there’s no way you could grow anything (I bet you can!), I am here to help you along the way. I can help you choose plants for your landscape, site and plan a vegetable garden, troubleshoot houseplant problems, even help you set up a composting system to keep your kitchen and yard waste on your property, turning it into garden gold.
I love looking at plants, talking about plants, talking TO plants, looking at seed catalogs, researching plants, smelling plants…I just love plants of all kinds!
I am especially passionate about getting folks growing their own food, and helping to remove the barriers to entry for home food cultivation. Here’s some veggie garden ideas to get you thinking. By no means is this list exhaustive. If you have ideas in your noggin, share them with me. I want you to love and enjoy the process, and the rewards.
