Hi, I’m Julia!
You know I wasn’t always an expert in slow and natural garden living.
A few years ago, I was a traveling early childhood art educator and small business owner specializing in process art, literacy, and nature connection for young families. I even owned a million-dollar subscription box company that shipped worldwide!
I loved helping families raise curious and creative kids. Then, everything changed. The pandemic happened, and my children and spouse received a celiac diagnosis. Our whole world was turned upside down. In the healing process, I discovered the joy and art of growing and creating with plants. My art studio transferred to the garden and the raised beds my husband helped me build.
In 2020, like so many others, I grew a large garden not only for food, but for medicine, bath and body care, crafts, and for the pure delight that comes with tending to flowers and green space. I took classes on permaculture, herbalism, foraging, and anything I could get my hands on to better understand the natural world.
I loved the idea of using plants as a source of food, health, and creativity. This started my herbal and plant journey; I wanted to deepen my connection with nature.
In my re-education, I found that the garden is the art studio space I had always longed for. I found myself more at ease the more time I spent in my garden. Plants provide endless inspiration and provide instant nature connections, always.
This can be you!
Here is what my current students are saying
