"Anastasia Eranosova and her company ’The Island Gardener’ have been caring for our large garden in Little Current since the spring of 2017. Through her efforts, guidance and initiative, our perennial gardens have really flourished and this year we will be starting a vegetable garden too, using her expertise. She is always easy to talk with and communicates regularly in person and via email. Anastasia is knowledgeable, personable, creative, reliable and hard working and we feel so lucky to have her working with us again this season, and we hope, for many more seasons to come."
