Crabtree Gardens, LLC is a 5-acre naturalized cottage garden getaway for anyone who desires to take a break from the stresses of life and reconnect with the healing earth and all of its wild beauty.
We teach chemical-free gardening classes and workshops for both beginner and more experienced gardeners, and we will custom tailor an educational experience for individuals or groups. We can also provide garden getaway packages for singles, couples, or small groups as there is a guest house located on site.
I'm the owner, Sandi Crabtree, and I have been certified in garden and interior design from Inchbald School of Design, and I have been growing and designing gardens for over 30 years. I personally develop the classes, based on chemical-free techniques that lean towards a more natural way of gardening.
Low-maintenance principles are incorporated into all of my programs, as I work with nature rather than against her. My passion is teaching people how gardening can change their lives by allowing them to find a healthy and creative outlet for stress and mental fatigue.
My classes are fun and interactive, allowing my students to get their hands dirty if they so desire. My clients enjoy the ability to have a classroom study in my new barn workshop, and the actual techniques are applied right outside the door in one of my garden rooms.
