Sharing the joy of gardening

Julie experienced incredible joy and wonder when she came to gardening while working at a local plant nursery in her twenties, and she loves to share that enthusiasm with her audiences. From intimate day classes, to full-room conference talks, to luncheons, Julie has told the story of the creation of her gardens and given others the tools to move ahead with their own garden dreams.

Julie’s messages include:

– Growing Your Redemptive Imagination Through Gardening
– Gardens: Key to a Healthy Community
– Garden Design: A Workshop
– Nature Study in the Garden
– Gardening to Become More Human (Incarnational Gardening)


“Gardening does not have to cost a lot. It can, but it does not have to. Learning to grow different types of plants and how to make more by yourself is the beginning to being able to make a garden that is cost effective, as well as beautiful. Our first garden, Gilmore, was started with no budget – just lots of love.”
