A lifelong gardener and plant nerd, Signe has lived in the PNW for over 40 years, and has spent a fair amount of that time enjoying, studying and learning about native plants. She puts her expertise and training in home horticulture, ecological landscaping and urban forestry to good use teaching the online Extension MG course. She also designs residential and commercial landscapes, specializing in regenerative gardening and landscaping practices.
Signe recently authored a new training module for the online MG course on Gardening with PNW Native Plants. She also co-authored an Extension publication, “Protecting and enhancing pollinators in Urban Landscapes”. For this she researched evidence-based documentation of pollinator plant preferences, and created sample landscape designs for pollinator gardens.
