Meet Veronica, Our Garden Guru
Veronica, an aesthetic pruner and garden educator, is the owner and operator of a fine gardening business in San Francisco and part of our Repair Referral Service. She thoroughly enjoys garden maintenance—likening it to creating beautiful paintings from a messy canvas—and implementing small-scale garden installations. Using organic, sustainable gardening practices, Veronica advocates for native and low-water-need plants suitable for our San Francisco microclimates. A two-time winner of the Pitschel Prize for Environmental Writing, a contributor to Pacific Horticulture magazine , a graduate of City College of San Francisco’s Horticulture Department, and an alumna of Garden for the Environment’s Gardening and Composting Educator Training Program, Veronica is honored to share her knowledge and expertise with the community. To further this endeavor, one Sunday every month, Veronica can be found at the San Francisco Botanical Garden in the Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture leading story time for children.
If your garden needs some love and you would like to speak to Veronica, please contact our Repair Referral Service at 415/200-3430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
