Welcome to Tulsa Vegetable Gardener, I am Laura. I have been a member of the Tulsa Master Gardeners since I moved to Tulsa in 2016, and am a lifelong gardener.
I come from a long line of experienced gardeners and remember helping in the garden from the time I was 3. I have started numerous successful vegetable gardens, some of which continue to produce even in homes we have left. In my home, in my Tulsa Oklahoma Garden, I have 14 thriving raised garden beds. I know how to grow everything from the common (peppers, tomatoes, melons), to the uncommon (golden berries, peanuts, edamame) and have a deep knowledge of growing food.
I am passionate about helping create beautiful vegetable gardens for clients because I believe there is no better way to eat better and connect to nature than having your own garden and watching it thrive.
In 2019 we adopted two young foster kids into our home. I left my very successful corporate job just months before we adopted those kids and my life changed. I knew I no longer wanted to spend 50+ hours a week in an office. I wanted to help my community, spend more time with my kids, and demonstrate that passions and talents drive the desire to do good work.
It was based on that decision and questions I received as a Master Gardener that Tulsa Vegetable Gardener was born. I know firsthand how important a garden space can become - and how frustrating it can be to watch a garden fail. I like to create great relationships with my clients and create a space they want to spend time in; a space that fills them with pride and joy. I look forward to helping you find the joy and love of your garden and all it has to offer you and your loved ones.
