We are profoundly grateful to Edwina Von Gal for sharing her invaluable insights on nature-based landscaping practices with our community. Her expertise in harmonizing with Mother Nature to create landscapes that are not only visually stunning, but also promote the health of our families, pets, and vital ecosystems is truly inspiring. Thank you, Edwina, for taking the time to guide us toward nurturing more vibrant and sustainable environments.

[Edwina’s] presentation was inspirational, entertaining & filled with a joyous sense of freedom – all while imparting such important information & a new way of looking at landscapes & plantings. I am so interested in getting as many of our residents as possible to understand a new perception of beauty. 

~ Jean Thatcher, Three Harbors Garden Club

We received wonderful, positive feedback from so many of the attendees who said that they felt informed and empowered to make changes in their home landscape practice towards a more ‘magical’ and sustainable model.

~Lisa de Guzman, Three Harbors Garden Club

My husband and I are totally inspired! And the feedback today says…so are the 175 + guests listening last night.
