If you are ready to make changes to your garden, take all the guesswork out of the next steps by letting Seven Bends Nursery assist with design work. Starting from the goals you establish in our consultation, we help with projects large and small: additions of natives to a non-native yard, a small native-only garden bed,  a complete overhaul of a yard, a native meadow reclamation, and anything in between!


Iara has a wide array of speaking experience to varied audiences interested in native plants, gardening, and science. She has presented from groups as small as a dozen to keynoting a larger event, and audiences appreciate the way she weaves research-based, scientific knowledge with practical, everyday advice and solutions. If you have an event, workshop, or need for a speaker, call us to discuss how we can help.
