Meet Leah! Thats me...owner, manager, designer, etc.
Educated at the Permaculture Skills Center, I received a certification in Ecological Landscaping and Permaculture Design. I studied in a 6 month immersion program with hands on experience, learning all about ecological landscape design, and permaculture design and principles.
Previously, I worked in the tech industry for about 10 years. Feeling the need to move back into work that grounds me, literally, I moved into the field of landscape architecture and design because of my lifelong love of gardening. I spent the better part of 2016 diving deep into ecological landscaping practices, permaculture design principles, and sustainable land stewardship.
My background is in web and graphic design. I have always been passionate about great design, usable interfaces, innovative engineering, and fascinated with everything this ever-growing industry has to offer. I enjoy the challenge of translating complex ideas into elegant, intuitive designs. Combined with an ecological education and a certification in permaculture design, all these skills translate well to designing landscapes.
My other passions involve a couple of non-profits that I donate a lot of my time and energy to. I believe volunteering is very important and rewarding work.
