Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, Garden Designer, Herbalist, Artist, Foodscaper, Forager, Wild Crafter
My plant obsession started as a young child. Whether I was sitting in the garden gorging myself on cherry tomatoes, picking grapefruit in the orchard to share with my grandparents, or long forest walks with my mom where she shared her love of natives, I have always had my head and heart in the botanical world. As a gardener I bring 25+ years of professional gardening experience working with landscapes from mountain to sea (zones 3-11). As an artist I love to paint landscapes and flora. As an herbalist you can find my formulations on www.tetonalchemy.com .
What I Provide
Bringing more depth to your landscaping by adding vegetables, fruit, and herbs to your garden in a visually pleasing way. Let me harvest for you or enjoy some free time with your hands in the soil. This is a great way to connect with your kids, friends, and/or just a therapeutic reprieve from your daily stress. Experience your food from seed to plate.
Crafting Edibles & Bodycare
Taking your garden full circle. Along with producing food you may choose to introduce medicinal herbs from which we can craft teas, lotions & salves, bitters, and a myriad of other potions to help create optimum vitality for you and your family.
Ayurvedic Garden Design
Using the principles of Ayurveda, a Vedic sister science to yoga, and 5 sense therapy, a garden is designed to create an optimum therapeutic, balancing, and nourishing outdoor environment for your whole household. It is a complete habitat for healing with consideration to trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, hardscape, food production, container planting, and outdoor living spaces.
When it comes to gardens as in most things, it takes three things---vision, execution, and amazing customer service. Katie and her team have made our outside home come to life in such vibrant beautiful ways that I can't wait until spring each year to see all the magic that happens for the next six months. Every time I drive up or walk outside, I just get happy.
