Caroline grew up in New Bern, NC and as a child remembers free-roaming around historic downtown New Bern climbing trees and discovering hidden gardens.
Caroline has always been a life-long gardener. Before graduate school, Caroline honed her love and knowledge of plants at a native plant nursery. Building upon the influence that nature has had in her own life, Caroline uses design to connect others to the natural world and to provide spaces for others to experience the health and social benefits of growing one’s own food. Now, she enjoys observing her toddler son develop a love of the natural world through exploration and discovery.
