GISELA GARAY, PROJECT DESIGNER
A landscape designer creating California-friendly gardens primarily on small-scale residential designs, Gisela knows the effects global warming and lack of access to clean water can have on disadvantaged communities. She advocates for individuals, organizations, and businesses involved in adopting solutions for the welfare of our environment and humankind.
