I discovered the joy of gardening in my flower and vegetable plot at the 6/15 Green community garden in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Wanting to learn much more, I interned at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and received my Certificate of Horticulture in 2010. I worked side by side with BBG’s experts, and took classes in a full range of areas from basic botany and plant propagation to urban garden design. My Brooklyn-based gardening business provides planting and maintenance of perennials, annuals and flowering shrubs. I select plants to create a continuously blooming garden, from spring bulbs through fall asters, yielding personally designed bouquets, directly from your garden to table.
I believe in environmentally sound practices, using compost to enrich soil that is often depleted of nutrients. I choose flowering perennials native to our region as well as other plants that encourage pollinators and benefit the overall health of our Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Whether you are looking for a complete design and renovation of your current garden space, a new window box or container, or advice in choosing plants that will thrive in your garden’s light and shade, I can work with you to make something beautiful.
