Erin started gardening as a toddler, or so the photos in her parents’ albums would have her believe, but didn’t really pick it up again until after college. When she had filled an apartment patio so full of plants that walking on it was no longer an option, she found a house with enough room for a garden. And it turned out there was room for several gardens! Erin has been battling weeds and deer there for 15 years, creating and recreating gardens around the 1.3-acre property and sharing the lessons and beauty she finds there on site. Along the line, Erin became a master gardener and she loves to continue to learn more about gardening every day.
