Caring for Creation

Call of Eden is all about caring for God's creation. We believe there is a clear connection between the health of our planet, our personal health and our spiritual well-being.

We share practical ways of how to live a more simple and sustainable way of life. It begins by taking small steps to improve our health and making choices that help restore our neighborhoods and the earth.

What is good for the planet is good for all of us!

My career background as a Montessori educator includes owning a Montessori primary school, children's music academy, and international teacher training center. After 35+ rewarding years of teaching, I decided to "retire" and continue my education to become a certified integrative health and nutrition coach. My careers and interests have always included care for the earth and for humanity…which starts with personal responsibility and self-care. (Dr. Montessori would agree!) I look forward to sharing my journey and discoveries with you, as well as hearing from and learning how YOU are making a difference.

About Us

Helping others and working outdoors has been a big part of both my personal and professional life. As a pastor, missionary, and owning a landscape business, I have always sensed a deep connection between nature, God's love, and how we flourish as humans. Call of Eden is my way of exploring and understanding the importance of this connection and inviting others do the same.

"The care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope." Wendel Berry
