I'm Hope Bauer, Master Gardener, and I've been an Orinda resident for 20 years. I have completed numerous gardens for neighbors and clients. I recently completed the Master Gardener Program at UC Davis, which emphasizes drought tolerant, sustainable gardening. I'm currently enrolled in the Landscape Horticulture Program at Merritt College in Oakland, CA. I have always loved gardening and get great satisfaction out of helping others design their outdoor oasis.
I’m Jill Gold, Garden Designer. Gardening has been my passion/therapy for the past 25 years. After several years in the Landscape Horticulture and Architecture program at Merritt College in Oakland, CA, I can now add garden designer to my resume. Always frugal , I enjoy creating beautiful, functional spaces, utilizing salvageable elements as well as new. I believe a garden can be fabulous while being low maintenance and can share gardening practices that support drought tolerance and sustainability.
