Growing Nature Connections
Nature Gardens is about bringing landscapes to life and creating places where nature is welcome. We are dedicated to building bird, bee and butterfly friendly places that bridge the gap that separates gardening and nature. Nature Gardens is also about creativity and experiential workshops in nature. We offer programs as a way to invite others to connect with nature and enrich their experience in the natural world.
Artist, Naturalist, Gardener
My journey in gardening is based in many years experience in landscaping combined with my interest in study as a naturalist. Inspired by the work of Douglas W. Tallamy, I'm interested in the initiative that conservation start in our own yard. I'd like to make a difference in how we garden and in how we connect with nature. My love of nature is a life-long relationship that includes advocacy, appreciation, adventure and art. I've completed the Ontario Master Naturalist Program and am actively involved with Pollinator Partnership of Canada. I'm a member of North America Native Plant Society. My creative work is shaped by over 20 years experience as an artist and workshop facilitator.
