Welcome to Mother Gardener: Your Path to Eco-Spiritual Connections

Hi, I'm Cortney!

Growing up I felt a pull to work in nature. As a young child some of my best memories were running freely in the open woods behind my grandmothers. I would be out with my cousins all day looking for wild blueberries and building rafts in the small pond. I can see it now, all of the leaves fallen on the ground, hillsides covered in slick mud, towering trees and the feeling that we could make or be anything we wanted. Now, that woods that seemed like it could go on forever has become a new sprawling housing development. I feel sad to know that this is happening all over. We are losing our wild places at such a fast pace and with that, creatures are losing their homes and we are losing our wild spirits.

I have always felt compelled to action, so I poured myself into learning as much about our environment as I could. I worked in a plant nursery as a teen, served abroad in Morocco in the Peace Corps and studied with numerous gardening institutions both online, in person in Colorado and through countless books and resources. From this I have come to the conclusion it is not enough to just plant a garden, but we need to take it a step further to learn from the garden and see ourselves mirrored back. For if we don't see ourselves in nature, how can we get the passion to want to protect it? This idea is the foundation in which Mother Gardener is founded on.

So let me ask you.........
