We who tend the land and garden are not to be underestimated. We collectively have the power and ability to nourish the body and soul; create beauty around us; heal an environmental wound; create school, memorial, dedication, guerrilla, teaching and public gardens, to name a few; return an area back to it's natural state, add value to properties; delight children and adults alike; create habitats for many living creatures; create retreats and places of meditation as well as playgrounds and community parks; address erosion and water problems and help to ward off famine. Gardening, like music, is one of the few common languages throughout the world and helps to unite us all. Margo 

Our Unique Programs

Holistic practices require knowledge of the natural processes upon which all life depends. Therefore the information presented in our programs is highly integrated, reflecting the integration of natural systems and processes.

To facilitate this paradigm shift we have developed our own comprehensive instructional materials, guiding students step-by step towards a new understanding of how nature works.

Students will be able to apply this knowledge in diverse situations, ranging from ornamental horticulture to small scale food production and environmental stewardship.

Our programs are designed to

  • Assist current professionals in their transition to sound environmental practices
  • Enable new students to become knowledgeable professionals in their fields of study
  • Provide a cooperative learning environment for the expression of ideas and knowledge
  • Be widely and easily accessible
