After 15 years working in Design, Erin wanted a different path for her creativity. She wanted to create and be a part of spaces that truly make healthier environments. After hearing Dr. Doug Tallamy at a gardening symposium, then reading his book, “Bringing Nature Home,” Erin was inspired to make a change. She returned to school to earn a Master’s in Horticulture. While working on projects ranging from National Wildlife Refuges, to riverbanks, to backyard residential habitat, she knows her experiences in life have brought her to this point.
Erin helps several teachers create spaces at their schools to bring natural areas to life, from pollinator gardens to whole prairies. The natural areas show children and communities how native grasses provide shelter, hold soil with deep root structures, or how flowers like Wild Lupine are crucial for the survival of a tiny butterfly like the Karner Blue.
