With an MFA in installation art and a background in photojournalism, Jill Greenberg’s goal as a gardener is to combine her natural attention to detail with her eye for the larger picture to support the client’s established vision. Her engagement with gardening is fueled by her appreciation for color, form, and texture in plants, as well as with the physicality of the work and the grounding contact with the soil. She cleans up well, and can be found dancing west coast swing, salsa, and tango.
