"I feel so much more confident gardening this year thanks to you!"Lori Jo Berg
"I couldn't recommend more ANY class/workshop/consultation with this wise, funny, knowledgeable and effective teacher. Kareen knows her stuff and shares it beautifully."Heather Baughman
"Kareen provided incredible guidance and information, but also put me in the driver’s seat and gave me the confidence to envision and build my new garden space. I no longer feel that all of my time is spent weeding and digging. Now I’m continuing to build a functional space, and it’s become so much more fun."Susan Higgins
"Kareen was thoughtful, creative and insightful in designing our dream space. We left our meeting with a beautiful, well thought out and ecologically friendly plan. She made a task that seemed insurmountable for us, feasible and exciting."Lilia Tyrell
“We hired Kareen at Broken Ground to come out and help us get our food forest space right. I am blown away at how efficient, knowledgeable, and full of good ideas she is. She just sketched a map as we talked and discussed. It's sooo good. We now have a workable action plan that flows, makes sense and is not crazy overwhelming."Bethany McGough, Mossy Meadow Farm
"Thank you SO much Kareen for coming out! Your ideas are so valuable! I would never have thought of any of this and it ALL makes so much sense for the property! I have SO much excitement and enthusiasm for getting outside this year and much of it is because of YOU! Thank you for sharing your guidance, expertise, wisdom, philosophy and resources!"Sue Miller
