I believe that anyone can make their dreams come true.
What's your dream?
I have been digging in the dirt since childhood. My first job was at a plant nursery, part of the ornamental horticulture department at Cal Poly Pomona.
When my husband and I bought our first home in 1992, I began organic food gardening.
At the time I was studying medicine, and didn't like what I read about the possible effects of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers on my baby daughter.
Nine years later I left medical practice due to disability, and my garden became part of my therapy.
By the time we (and our three children) moved to the Midwestern US in 2005 we didn't have to go to the store for vegetables or fruit. It was all right there in our yard.
We love our new home, but when we got here its front and back yards had basically dead soil and few of its existing plants were edible.
But that's changing! I discovered the concept of edible landscaping somewhere around 2009, and I've never looked back.
If you're dreaming of a beautiful, tasteful home landscape -- and you're ready to start making that dream happen -- start digging and we can make our dreams come true together.
