Cultivating Place: Harvest – Stefani Bittner, Alethea Harampolis

Mar 23, 2017

Sometimes when you use the word garden – people immediately conjure up images of the ornamental perennial border, other people however conjure up colorful visions of the summer vegetable garden. In July of 2016, we were joined by Stefani Bittner of Homestead Design Collective discussing her work as ornamental edible landscape designer. Early in 2017, her most recent and beautiful book, Harvest, was published by  10 Speed Press. Stefani co-wrote Harvest – Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary garden Plants with Alethea Harampolis. We’re celebrating the new publication and the upcoming growing season by revisiting our summer-time interview with Stefani. Enjoy.

Stefani Bitner is co-owner with fellow plantperson, floral and garden designer Alethea Harampolis of Homestead Design Collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their newest book, "Harvest - Unexpected projects using 47 Extraordinary Garden Plants" came out this spring from Ten Speed Press.
