About Zhanna Goldfine

Zhanna fell in love with plants in the forests, meadows, gardens and city parks of Ukraine, and learned gardening from her grandmother. She took a long detour after coming to the US in 1989 – first working as a Software Developer, and then as a Psychotherapist. Eventually, she completed training in Landscape Design, Construction and Maintenance, and came back to doing what she loves most – creating beautiful gardens.
