Arriving from Germany in 1986 on the Big Island of Hawai’i , I moved to Maui in 1990 .

My start on Maui was landscaping and evolved to building organic veggie gardens ( for  Peter Baldwin and John Baldwin among others) and maintaining them as well. All  gardens I built had little ponds for  organic pest control .

1999 I started a fragrant organic rose farm in Kula by the name  Incredible Roses , selling in Hanzawa’s Store in Haiku.
