I’ve been an architect and an organic gardener for over 20 years. My design work creates beautiful and beneficial buildings to empower individual lives. After all, we spend so much of our time inside in our schools, offices, and homes.

As a woman obsessed with nature and its bounty and power, I use natural materials in my building designs.  Gorgeous and low  maintenance, natural materials reconnect us to the world outside. And the benefits of nature and natural materials are proven to enhance our lives.


When I discovered kokedama (moss ball gardens) I was smitten. I went out the next day and bought all the materials to make my own version of this ancient Japanese art form. At that time I never dreamed it would become a business. But here I am 4 years later and I’ve found this is an extension of my mission to bring nature in to our lives. I call them my starter kit for a healthy home.  The power of one small plant is amazing.

Global Gardens (also called GGs) solved the problem of my cat nibbling on my plants. They hang completely out of her reach. Since GGs take just a small space, they keep your counters and floors clear. For urban dwellers with small spaces, they’re the perfect solution. And many of my clients don’t like to get their hands dirty, but they want the greenery of live plants. Voilà, GGs come complete, just hang them up and keep your manicure intact. And as a gift, Global Gardens living sculptures just keep on giving.

Global Gardens modern kokedama are virtually fool proof and created to last. Each component has been tested and proven to be easy to grow and thrive for years. I’ve had many failures, which you’ll never see. I only offer to you the best plants that have earned the green thumbs up! Order yours today.

Thanks for becoming a Global Gardener.
