Kristin is a native Texan, who went to college in Kansas and ended up in Arizona in 2004. She has been gardening, raising chickens, planting fruit trees, and constructing buildings ever since! Although Kristin has been an architect designing interiors and commercial buildings, her roots began with spending time in the garden with her grandfather as a child and was drawn to the concept of permaculture. After completing a permaculture design course, she made a career change and now works full time as a consultant helping her clients with edible landscape designs. She formed her business Cultivated LLC six years ago and currently is in the process of designing 45 acres worth of landscape.
