Hello, welcome to my site!

I’m a gardening geek, wild edible plant forager, dahlia farmer, and botany enthusiast.

 I offer landscape design services, classes, tutoring, and consultations. My knowledge and services are primarily based around two subjects, gardening and foraging for wild edible plants. I additionally offer topics such as Wildlife Gardening, Sustainable Garden Design, Permaculture, Vegetable Gardening, Plant Disease Diagnosis, and more!

My background includes five years and five hundred hours as a WSU Master Gardener (Class of 2011), an OSU Permaculture Design Certification, and more. I’m also a full time student at Clark College, working towards a degree in Botany. Most importantly, I practice the subjects I like to teach about. I’m slowly converting my backyard into a sustainably designed natural garden ecosystem. You can read more about my background here.

If you would have any questions or want to just say hi, please send me an email! I’d love to hear from you.
