white clover gardening

creative earth


We're old school - we love to work with our hands and create with nature. This is our 8th year gardening in the GTA. Our passion for plants and possibilities led us to make hypertufa containers and custom alpine troughs.


We share our skills and enthusiasm by teaching classes for other creative and curious plant people.


Maritta graduated from Humber Horticulture and has a diploma in pottery and commercial ceramics. She has 15 years teaching experience and guarantees every student will be pleased with their projects.


Barbara has 20 years professional gardening experience and has also taught and developed creative programming in the Toronto Board and in the Montessori learning environment. Barbara brings a modern, sophisticated style to everything we make.
