" Harvest Design Collective is extremely creative, communicative, and fun to work with. They transformed my backyard into a food forest, abundant with rare fruits and vegetables from all over the world. I can walk through at any time during the year and forage. Their plantings encouraged pollinators and bird life to come back to this area that was once desolate and void of plant life. They integrate beauty, sustainability and abundance in their work. I am thrilled with the sanctuary they created!"

"We had the unique opportunity and pleasure of having Sara and her Harvest Design team, create a bespoke garden for us. Not only was Sara and her team tremendously knowledgeable about what would and would not grow in our particular backyard but she had the vision and the resources to work with us to create something that fit us like a glove.
Sara used her knowledge of plants, color schemes and the actual ability to create infrastructure for these plants to grow and prosper. Sara was patient. She listened to us and worked cooperatively to create not just another a cookie-cutter design. It gives us daily pleasure to watch things change and grow in our new garden.
Sara has resources for sourcing plants and trees and knows exactly what each plant or tree needs to grow well in the garden. There is not one thing I would change in our relationship with Sara and her team. They were professional, knowledgeable and we are very lucky to have been her client. She respected our wishes and did not overpower us with preconceived ideas. Sara is a hands-on designer builder and took pride in the work she performed. "
