Viola introduced me to the design philosophy that is permaculture and I’m hooked. The most poetic permaculture lesson I learned was to keep a focus on the edges of things, as it is often in the space between, not in the things themselves, where new growth occurs.

Viola Gardens is growing fast! If you would like to help the business grow please write a review on Yelp or Houzz. xo

This is a little taste of my pre-shoot location scout. Stay tuned for a peek at Peggy’s shots coming soon. xo
