What People Say About Nan
“I had a vision and Nan made it come true. Nan tackled the job of creating four themed gardens for me on our small lot using many unusual plants. Now it is a joy to return home to our welcoming entrance surrounded by the amazing plantings…
I am fortunate to have found Nan and I appreciate her continued support.”
“Nan’s garden school is the best thing that has happened to my gardening game. The monthly check lists have helped to keep me on task or at least to remind me that I am always hopelessly behind on my gardening chores. The live classes are extremely informative. There is always something new to learn even if you are a seasoned gardener.
I highly recommend joining the school. You won’t regret it.”
“We told Nan she had a clean slate to work with and told her our expectations were for a unique, low maintenance, colorful back yard. She listened carefully to the ideas we had in mind for the hardscape and incorporated those into the plans. The results exceeded our expectations and we now have a retreat to enjoy and share…
Anyone fortunate enough to capture some time from this enterprising woman will be glad they did. We highly recommend her work.”

Seeds Starting Workshop
“I wanted to particularly comment on how very well designed, planned, organized and executed your class was. I have a teaching background, and as a student, found it very easy to follow, from start to finish. I thought it was a brilliant way to do this, with an almost foolproof, step by step plan that was easy to follow.
I particularly liked the kindergarten approach—you take it back to the very beginning– the basics–, and work up from there. You covered all the bases, as a teacher, from the beginning on up. Nothing was left out; it was brilliant.”
