Anne Gachuhi’s vast knowledge and experience of horticulture and landscape maintenance  is exceptional. After attending a 5 weeks landscape maintenance course  that Anne was teaching, I was inspired to learn more realizing that my instructor had so much more to offer. The interconnected relationships of the plants together with the good, bad and ugly bugs came to life through this program.   I highly recommend Anne.

Dr. Scott Fisher, Director of Conservation, Hawaiian Islands Land Trust

The 5 weeks course I took by Anne Gachuhi on landscape maintenance  was absolutely amazing and more than fulfilled my expectation. Anne’s course provided me with an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and information and to better understand the relationship between various topics of landscape care, soil science, plant health, pests and disease control. Anne is extremely qualified in the field that she teaches and  I really appreciated the clear and concise way she communicated the course information. I have already begun to apply many of the lessons I learnt in her class in my work.

Irene McPhee, lahaina, Hawaii

I took gardening classes offered by Anne Gachuhi at Lahaina Civic Center. These included: identifying and fighting garden bugs, pruning, soil conditioning, plant propagation and  organic gardening.  Anne’s presentations are in depth and yet enjoyable and easy for the novice to follow. We also arranged for a personal consultation with Anne. During this hands-on inspection of our property, Anne shared her knowledge and expertise for the specific conditions and issues with our fruit trees and landscaping. Anne’s classes and garden consultations are an excellent resource for home gardeners of any level, and an excellent value as well. I highly recommend Anne.

Myrna Fung- Maui, Hawaii

During a recent garden consultation at our home, Anne showed me how to improve my garden including: pruning my fruit trees and low-lying plants: when to do it, how to do it, which branches to tackle first and how often.  Anne also recommended the proper location for my plants, she provided me with lists of ground covers, succulents and tropicals that would be good for my garden. She gave me quick and easy tips on improving my soils, controlling garden pests, grafting techniques and composting. Anne is a wealth of information and well worth the time and cost.

I found Anne Gachuhi to be a wealth of excellent knowledge, very helpful  and enthusiastic about gardening when I   enrolled in a 5 weeks  Tropical Fruit Production class that she conducted at the UHMC (University of Hawaii, Maui College). The success of her students was of utmost importance to her and she was extremely helpful in problem solving. Ms. Gachuhi was inspirational in making me feel that my orchard can be a success, with a lot of work and knowledge that I learned in her class. I will definitely sign up for another of her classes.

I am writing to say how delighted my daughters and I are for the renewed interest in which Anne  brought  about in our garden and orchard! At our first garden consultation Anne advised us on the areas our garden needed improvements on, how to implement those changes, what trees, bushes and plants needed pruning, and showed us how to prune correctly as well as proper horticultural practices. I highly recommend Anne’s  consultation service and classes to anyone who wants a healthy garden, and renewed vigor.

Melani Palmer- Maui Malama Family Farm in Ulupalakua, Hawaii

I   am a farmer, gardener, and first grade elementary teacher.  I feel blessed to have discovered Anne Gachuhi in 2009 when I took a dynamic and inspiring session on vermicomposting class she conducted at the University. I look forward to Anne’s hands-on consultation on our family farm each year because she has a knowledge base like an encyclopedia and an extensive background in agricultural practices.  She advices us on soils, plant health, nutrient needs, pests and diseases control and other pertinent plant details. Anne’s visits are fun, funny, and engaging !!

Anne is delightful to work with. Her home visits were valuable in jump starting my garden. She helped me focus  on my garden goals and she gave advice that I can easily implement on my own to transform my garden. She’s very knowledgeable in identifying plant problems/pests and offering solutions, plus garden design. Anne’s enthusiasm for gardening empowers her clients and their gardens to flourish!
