Lindsey's mom, 90 years old, is still her "go to gardening coach!" She worked in a nursery, her mother worked in a nursery and, growing up, their vegetable garden was their primary source of fresh produce. Her mom knows the latin names of plants - Lindsey doesn't! BUT, her mom never stopped learning and sharing her knowledge. She is the inspiration for this series.
We believe the power of knowledge is sharing it. With this as an ethos, a group of Horticulture specialists have collaborated to provide first hand guidance to YOU, on what to do in YOUR garden.

Wake Up Your Winter Garden Journey
Imagine tapping in to 40 years of combined landscape, home horticulture, gardening experience in an intimate, interactive session. That's exactly what you'll get with the WithU Landscape "Wake Up Your Winter Garden Journey! STARTS APRIL 13!
Lindsey left the corporate world to grow her own groceries. The result is that her family eats tastier food with no chemicals. She was drawn back to her roots of growing up on a farm.
Today she is an urban farmer, home horticulturist and permaculture landscape designer. Lindsey's goal is to work alongside each client to realize their own vision. One plant is all it takes to start. The rest of the story is the clients' to write. Everyone has it in them to be a gardener. So let's go shopping in your own backyard!
Harolyn Jubar Engleskirchen
Harolyn has always had an interest in plants and growing things. Natural science was one of her favorite subjects and she always had a plant growing somewhere. Wherever she found herself, Harolyn would set roots with houseplants that she nurtured and propagated for years at a time.
The opportunity to expand her horticulture knowledge and experience came when she transformed a neglected city lot into a vegetable garden of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, and a variety of squash among other herbs and flowers.
When urban living turned to suburban living, Harolyn planted her own vegetable gardens. Now that suburban living has turned to rural living, sustainability is her foremost priority; being able to grow all of her veggies and fruits instead of going to the store is her end goal.
Having fruit trees on the property, Harolyn needed to learn more about them; therefore, she took a fruit tree education series and joined a group that specialized in pruning for health and production. She currently provides consultation for homeowners in gardening, fruit tree education and pruning.
Throughout Harolyn’s horticultural journey, she always shared her knowledge with others who wanted to learn how to start their own gardens and became a Master Gardener to provide gardening education to the community.
