Houzz Contributor. I own Monarch Gardens, a native plant garden consulting, coaching, and design firm for the DIY homeowner, business, or school. I'm the author of several books including Sleep, Creep, Leap: The First Three Years of a Nebraska Garden, am a board member of the prairie conservation group Wachiska Audubon, and write for the blog Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens. I dig in Lincoln, Nebraska with an award-winning 2,000 square feet of mostly native plants that has been featured at Fine Gardening and Garden Design. I also blog about my writing (memoir) and gardening projects at The Deep Middle. I'm looking for 40-80 acres in eastern Nebraska, western or central Iowa, or southern Minnesota to start a nursery, artist residency, and restore some prairie.
