Strawberry Fields LLC was started in early 2020 by Kellie Cox.

For the last 20 years, Kellie has worked in the horticulture world creating artistic and native landscapes for clients and historic museums throughout the east coast. Along with her horticulture career, Kellie has worked as an artist and muralist. Her artwork and projects can be seen here and most recently her work with the US Botanic Gardens can be viewed here!
 

Her dream for many years has been to start her own landscape design business. With the arrival of her daughter Amelia Rose in 2019, Kellie felt it was time to start her dream of Strawberry Fields. Her passion is to create beautiful and unique landscapes, featuring a variety of native plants that thrive within our region. Kellie is excited to share her knowledge and experience of horticulture + art, and design beautiful and unique gardens for her clients!

Emma has been part of the Strawberry Fields team since May 2022 and her base of operations is at Millie Farms, where she works part-time at our small urban farm growing fruit and flowers for cutting, as well as growing native plantings for our landscape installation. When not at Millie, Emma keeps house in Washington, D.C., with her toddler, partner, a tortoiseshell kitty, and lots of indoor plants.

Samina Vieth

Design Assistant

For the past 13 years, Samina has called D.C. her home. As a mom of twin daughters, she has had the opportunity to work in both the regional DMV area and nationwide as a scenic designer and event designer. As an event professional, she has helped design and manage a wide variety of corporate, private, and social events including the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Her love for design comes from the idea of creating visual stories. She is passionate about collaboration to bring these stories and ideas to fruition. After 10 years in events and theatre, she is taking her skills outside! Even though horticulture is a new field for her, she loves to create pieces organically and use textures to bring scenes to life. While she has a favorite season (Spring!) her favorite type of flower is in constant rotation.
