When Robin isn't in the garden, she's likely exploring the wild world with her camera or cooking up something tasty or healing from her harvests -- cultivated and wild. Many of her creations are available for purchase in select retail locations & online in the GardenMentorsDesigns Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GardenMentorsDesigns

Fantastic Inspiration

Deb Olliff from WA - 04/21/2018 19:16:11

I feel like Robin has opened my eyes. After moving to Orcas Island a little over 2 years ago and acquiring 1.1 acres of property, much of which is garden, I now look at it differently. I have always admired "wild gardens"—gardens that were not formally arranged in neat borders and rows. But I have never been very good at making my garden "wild" in a good way. Now I am looking at the plants that I can't seem to win, and letting em be a part of my landscape. Robin is extremely knowledgeable and personable and fun, suggesting things that I never would have thought of and I high recommend her.

As SGC President, I received many compliments on Robin's program. Everyone enjoyed it and learned something new. I can highly recommend Robin.
