The Village Garden

About me

After 23 years of teaching high school, I decided to pursue other passions which include all things garden and nature. I started a landscape design and maintenance company that has been handed over to the younger members of the family (Florida summers are way too hot.) I still work with a handful of clients that have become good friends. I am also a horticultural consultant and work mainly for a large grower in south Florida.

Current project

I am currently redesigning my own gardens that been neglected since I was working on other people's gardens...Needless to say I have a lot of work to do. On the garden-work side I have a couple of different projects that involve gardening, education and marketing! How fun does that sound!!!!

Type of gardener

All around gardener

Favorite garden activity

Weeding, its a great time to reflect and dream
