Geri Miller
Ms. Miller’s company, Home Grown Edible Landscapes, grew out of her effort to reach out to like-minded people who were searching for sound, research-based resources for challenges they were facing in their own back (and front) yards. Through the overwhelming response to her fan page on Facebook, it was clear that there was a growing local and national "grass roots" interest in learning to use landscapes in a more environmentally sound and productive way. As a UC Davis certified Master Gardener and Horticulturist, Ms. Miller has been designing, planting and teaching in edible and native gardens, from private residences to public schools, since 2004. Working to strengthen communities, much of her work over the years has been pro bono to educators and non-profits focusing on children.

Her philosophy is that there is more value in teaching individuals and families how to design and care for their own gardens than in the "stop and drop" style of traditional landscaping.

It all started with a bean sprout and a cat that wouldn't let it be.

That's how Holly and Sean Hirshberg caught the gardening bug 13 years ago in their small apartment. Apparently, their cat enjoyed it too and developed quite a skill for early harvesting! Undaunted, the Hirshbergs pressed...
