Raised in Alaska, with an educational background in Cultural History from UC Berkeley and Landscape Architecture from the University of New Mexico, her award-winning land-based projects educate and inspire connection between people and place. Ms. Green founded Down to Earth, LLC, a landscape design-build firm in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1999 with the politically motivated intent to make edible gardens, native plant landscapes, repurposed materials and recycled wastewater more prolific than the two-car garage. Healthy food, water, soil, wildlife and habitat are the guiding principles behind Ms. Green’s regenerative work. Ms. Green activates dialogue and interaction about land, food and water through unlikely insertions and educates via interactive workshops and presentations locally and nationally. In 2014, Christie Green established radicle, a complementary adjunct to Down to Earth, offering a community forum for collaboration and artful activism. Ms. Green hunts and harvests for herself and her daughter, and offers curated, seasonal suppers as interactive, educational and sensual opportunity to connect to each other and place through food.
