Garden content, consulting,& inspiration
To be in the soil is to return home
To steward the earth is to rise into our calling
Dr. Rachel H., client
“It’s been very helpful to have Emily give me guidance on planning, how to improve my garden, my soil…I’m excited! Overall I think this is an invaluable resource. There’s nothing out there like it…nothing can replace someone coming in, hands on, to give advice that’s trusted. Gardening has helped me navigate the stress of everything the world is facing; it’s a blessing and I would highly recommend it!”
To grow a plant is to triumph

But garden overwhelm can be real...
You've tried it all.
The raised beds look great that first spring with their fresh new wood and dark soil. You can't wait to get the seedlings in the ground. You know this will be your year; harvesting a huge, juicy tomato to slice on your BLT and having plenty to share with friends & neighbors.
By July 4th the garden is turning into a jungle. You can't figure out what to do with the gangly tomato vine branches that have swallowed up the cage you set in place for support. And what's that eating your tomatoes? You wish you were but only a few produced. The soil is drying out and you forget to water when you get home from work. By late summer the weeds have taken over the bed and all you can do is sigh when you see it from the kitchen window.

I started Grounded with a mission: to sow seeds of garden-centered wellness for mind, body, and spirit.
My love of gardening sprouted during my college years in garden-laden Charleston, SC where I became fascinated with the power of a garden to enchant, heal, and inspire.
Since moving to Charlotte, NC I have started organic gardens in schools and for refugees, and transformed my own yard into a flourishing, edible landscape with fruiting trees & shrubs, vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
Teaching others to confidently grow a nourishing garden is my passion, whether to a kindergarten student or an empty nester. Each of us have more green in our thumbs than we realize!
