No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden – Thomas Jefferson
To strengthen our community and environment by connecting people to their food through installing gardens and edible plants into landscapes and spreading education about healthy organic and sustainable practices.
I started this company to share my passion for landscaping, organic gardening, teaching, and sustainability with the community. My goal is to help as many people as possible establish and maintain food production on their properties while spreading the knowledge and benefits of healthy sustainable living.
I have several years of experience in traditional landscaping where I developed a love for working outdoors and transforming and maintaining landscapes. With this experience and my passion for health and nutrition I began searching for a business that could combine the two and with the help of a friends suggestion came across edible landscaping and permaculture. This was the eureka moment for me to launch myself at the project of starting Fresh Roots!
Once the seed of the company was planted I began the growth by completing the Southeast Master Gardener program and joining the Waukesha County Permaculture group to further my knowledge and seek out like minded people to share in this endeavour.
I am very excited about where this company can go and how much change we can make happen together while providing for our community!
