Community Outreach and Education

As a designer, you can never build a garden better than yourself. 

What better way to strive towards creating awe-inspiring gardens than to be a lifelong student?  With this conviction, Desi continually engages in outreach to the community and education in the following ways:

  • Charlotte Tani Douti Scholarship

  • Cities Alive

  • Greenroof Info Thinktank – GRIT

  • KAKEHASHI Project (Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs)

  • Noel Pour Nous Fundraiser

  • North American Japanese Garden Association – NAJGA

  • Urban Ecology and Conservation Symposium

  • Waza to Kokoro (International Japanese Garden Training Center)

  • Sogetsu Ikebana, Urasenke Chado, and en plein air watercolor painting

  • American Society of Landscape Architects
