We offer our services to homeowners, businesses, local government and community organizations, who are looking for inspiration through speaking engagements and workshops, or who are looking to create beautiful, low-water and self-sustaining gardens or landscapes that can provide an abundance of food, joy and natural services such as pollination, without using chemicals or pesticides.

We:

  • Design innovative low-water landscapes
  • Design, build, and plant container and kitchen gardens
  • Provide coaching, consultation services, speaking engagements and workshops

We are committed to creating opportunities and spaces for growing food and for improving well-being such as medicinal and sensory gardens. We are avid vegetable gardeners and love to design kitchen gardens, long-lasting raised beds and container gardens, to suit your growing needs for years to come.

We offer educational opportunities through workshops and speaking engagements where we emphasize the interconnectedness between the health of the soil, the nutrients in our food, and the health of your body and mind.

 

Growing Inspired was launched in 2013, initially offering gardening and cooking educational opportunities, and has grown to offer landscape design and consulting services.

Elana is a trained ecological designer with 12 years experience including product and system design, gardening and landscape design, project management, and home energy efficiency and renewable energy education. This training makes it possible to take a holistic approach to design, incorporating the needs of the landscape with the heating and cooling needs of the home, where desired.

Elana is dedicated to increasing food security and sustainability in the Okanagan and co-designed the Kelowna Food Forest, which she helps coordinate through the Central Okanagan Food Policy Council.
