aesthetic pruning & restoration

Albuquerque, New Mexico

The time has arrived...

After 26 years of successfully bringing gorgeous and sustainable pruning to Albuquerque, Divine Earth is now ready for transplant.

I have potted it up and I am ready to lovingly hand it to the next generation.

The Nutshell:

  • We’re entering a stage of looking for the next DE steward/owner. I feel that we’re all in this together, and I value your eyes and ears...so if you know of someone interested, please direct them here to our website. LGBTQ and BIPOC plant lovers encouraged to inquire!
  • The business will continue to be in conscious dormancy until we find the next owner, at which time we will start up again, beginning with a period of overlap and introduction, so everyone gets to meet, and is happy and informed going forward.

The Longer Version:

The last few months of sabbatical and pause, all in the midst of what feels like a massive global awakening and major shift, have created perfect conditions for clarity. I know I am so not alone in sharing that I’ve really let the pain in the world touch my heart more deeply, and I feel changed. I feel more committed than ever to not closing my heart, but staying open, connected, and engaged. I feel more committed to working to alleviate the pain around me. And I feel more committed to weaving together my spiritual practice, my love of plants, and my joyful, practical work in the world.

And what does this have to do with selling Divine Earth?

Well, like many plant lovers, I have spent more time in my garden during the last few months — watching morning glories twist around bamboo stakes, and fledgling finches take their first trip to the bird bath. I’ve been able to really SEE the things I’ve been moving too fast to see before! I feel so grateful to the earth for, quite literally, grounding me. And grateful to all of you for your good wishes and support. Thank you!

Basically, I’ve gotten a LOT of clarity about what my next chapter is, which first involves passing DE to the next steward. And then involves something fun and juicy…like climate justice and climate resilience…and it’ll be plant related, of course! That’s all I’m gonna say for now, but stay tuned…wink wink.

Of course, we hope you will stay with us through this transition!

Each and every one of you has played an important role in the creation and flourishing of this local business, and my deepest intention is for DE to bring benefit to Albuquerque and beyond for many generations. I will do everything I can to make this transition smooth, clear, and joyous! And when we do find the next steward, there will be festivities and celebrations to mark the transition — stay tuned!

So, here’s one more thing I’d love for you to help me visualize:

Creating such a beneficial and successful business as a queer woman in this industry, you know, a space that historically hasn’t been predominantly female or queer, is an achievement we can all be proud of. We all lifted this up, Albuquerque! Now, let’s take this to the next level, and keep empowering diversity and the creative magic of our community in this gorgeous bioregion! I would LOVE to give the opportunity of owning, operating, and having further success in this business to a young Black, Indigenous, Person of Color, and/or someone from the LGBTQ community. Can we do this? Yesssss! Know someone? Send them here!

I thank you from the depths of my heart for all of your patronage and kindness through these many years, and I will be in touch.

With deep gratitude,

  • How long will this dormancy last, and when will Divine Earth re-open?
    We are actively looking for a buyer (know someone who might be interested? Send them here!) so it depends on how swiftly this process moves. My hunch is that it will be pretty quick, as this is a fantastic opportunity for someone, or a group of someones.
  • Will I get the same level of care from the next owner?
    We are looking for someone, or a collective, who has at least some of the same (stellar!) qualities we do: caring, attentive to details, a plant lover, warm, professional, hard working, and a bit silly, because that always helps. We’re also looking for someone who has experience with plants, and an intuitive sense of what they need and how to prune them. We want you to be in very good hands!
