Home Grown Edible Landscapes

HGEL grew out of an effort by Master Gardener, Geri Miller, to reach out to like-minded people who were searching for sound, research-based resources for challenges they were facing in their own back (and front) yards. As a UC Davis certified Master Gardener and horticulturist, Ms. Miller has been designing, planting and teaching in sustainable edible and native gardens, from private residences to public schools, since 2004. Working to strengthen communities, much of her work over the years has been pro bono to educators and non-profits focusing on children.

Her philosophy is that there is more value in teaching individuals, families and businesses how to design and care for their own gardens than in the "stop and drop" style of traditional landscaping. The additional yet no less important benefit possible from this approach is a richer experience for the individual client or family by:

  • heightening environmental awareness,
  • reducing the carbon footprint of the traditional landscape, a healthier lifestyle through better nutritional habits and increased physical activity through gardening.[/li]
