Say Hello!

There are always lots of reasons to look forward to a new gardening season: shaking off the winter blahs; getting back into shape; seeing what’s new and exciting in the garden centers; the chance to try new ideas.

Top of the list, however, is beauty.

This year’s crew will bring amazing beauty to the gardens. We’re not talking simple ornamentation, here, but substance, passion, intelligence, and skill.

Leah 1Most of our clients met Leah last year. Her quiet confidence and cheer are incredible to be around. What you may not know is that Leah is a certified community herbalist, teaches community herb classes, and has an Associates degree from PPCC. On March 17, she’ll be teaching a class for the Vegan Society on an immune boosting herbal tonic called Fire Vinegar. When Leah isn’t working, she’s mountain biking, rockhounding, backpacking, sewing, wildcrafting herbs, checking out the local arts scene, or enjoying quiet sunshine moments in nature.

Jacqui_Della 2017-07-16 at 18.32 _2Now, say Hello to Jacqui! New to Green Way, but not new to professional gardening, Jacqui brings with her a love for pruning and a great eye for container planting. With her in this sweet photo is her brilliant daughter, Della. They are together in their rooftop garden near downtown Colorado Springs. Jacqui has studied holistic nutrition, and is passionate about spreading the word about the goodness of vegetables. She’s also an avid hiker and outdoorswoman. And I’ve yet to meet Jacqui when she doesn’t have a writing notebook in hand.

So much beauty to look forward to in 2018.

Now, let’s just have some beautiful snow!
