Hello, I’m Andrea Gasper, creator and host of Digging In Gathering. I founded Contained Gardens in 2001, a full service container garden design company in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I love to create beauty and provide happiness for others with flowers. In 2017 I started Digging In to fill a void in the industry. My hope is Digging In Gathering will provide others the help, encouragement, inspiration and community I never had in the first 17 years of my business.
