Food, Beauty, Healing, and Connection
I love gardens! They provide healthy food, functional beauty, healing spaces, and connection to nature. They inspire the creative, artistic, and spiritual and they give us a time and place to slow down and breathe deeply. My mission is to heal body, mind, spirit, and planet one garden at a time.
Whether you are interested in a few plants in pots on a patio, raised beds in a yard, or a small food forest, anyone can have a beautiful, productive, healing garden. I offer organic, sustainable, regenerative, and personal garden services specializing in food, herb, flower, craft, and native plants.

My name is Laura and I have over 20 years of experience designing, creating, and managing a variety of gardens and garden programs, including school, community, production, education, and residential gardens.
I have a bachelors degree in Biology and Ecology, a masters degree in Public Health, and permaculture and master gardener certifications.
Experience. Creativity. Passion.
Laura is exceptionally skilled at providing a safe and supportive environment for learning, inspiring students to embrace and embody environmental stewardship values as their own, and has an extensive knowledge of and passion for natural systems.
Laura is extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about gardening and the local, seasonal, organic food movement. She proved to be a strong program planner and coordinator with an abundance of well explained ideas and a thorough vision of garden possibilities.
My expectations were hugely exceeded. Working with Laura whose endless supply of positivity and agricultural knowledge has been an absolute pleasure. This internship was a wonderful experience that I am so grateful to have been a part of.
