Mar 28, 2020
 

Garden planning can be intimidating. 

Learning to trust our seeds (and ourselves) is the work (and play!) of a lifetime and I'm honored to share everything I've learned about gardening and garden planning with you :)

First, you should know: There are as many ways to plan a garden as there are gardeners, so Friends,

Here is what I ask of you: 

~ learn all you can from gardeners you love (I'm honored to be among them!) 

~ experiment with curiosity and joy

~ share everything you learn with everyone you can
