No matter how small the space, a garden is a jewel that adorns the house. -Aimeebeth
Aimeebeth traces her passion for gardening back a few generations to family farming in Wisconsin and its impact on her grandmother. She says, “Gardening is in our blood!” She has fond memories of working alongside her grandparents; her grandpa tended fruit trees and carefully pruned hedges and her grandmother created whimsical gardens inspired by Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz for her grandkids. It was contagious. Aimeebeth has been gardening ever since.
Aimeebeth’s love of gardening was honed through study and practice. A Master Gardener and science major with hands-on experience in Chicago’s Lincoln and Garfield Park Conservatories, she transitioned to residential gardens in 2015. At Christie Dustman & Company, Aimeebeth says, “I continue learning new concepts and clever tips and share what I’ve learned with workmates who genuinely love what they do!” She loves crafting, sewing, knitting, event planning, decorating, floral arranging, and basically everything you’d find her Gram doing. She enjoys anything involving history, art, and visiting museums.
