Kimberly's deep-rooted love for fresh food and gardening traces back to her childhood, where she fondly remembers the joy of plucking juicy ripe tomatoes and harvesting fragrant basil leaves from their stems alongside her great-grandmother. These early experiences in the culinary arts and tending to plants in the garden instilled in Kimberly a profound understanding that food encompasses more than just satisfying hunger. It ignited a realization that food has the transformative power to create lasting memories, evoke pure joy, and forge meaningful connections with loved ones.
This passion for fresh food and gardening has propelled Kimberly towards a mission of promoting veganic gardening, universally accessible gardens, and garden education for people of all ages. She firmly believes that gardens should be spaces that not only produce nourishing food but also serve as platforms for education and community engagement. Kimberly envisions gardens that are accessible to everyone, regardless of physical abilities, and where individuals can connect with nature, learn about sustainable practices, and experience the therapeutic benefits of gardening.
Kimberly is also dedicated to seeing gardens in all communities, recognizing the potential for these spaces to replace traditional grass areas and contribute to water conservation and increased food production. She envisions a world where manicured lawns are transformed into vibrant agri-landscapes, blooming with edible fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs. By advocating for this transformation, Kimberly aims to reduce water usage, improve community health through access to fresh and nutritious food, and create more sustainable and resilient communities.
Through her deep-rooted love for fresh food, her dedication to veganic gardening, universal accessibility, and garden education, Kimberly is committed to creating a healthier and more sustainable world, one harvest at a time.
