About

Marann Jones is a Landscape Consultant, Adult Educator, Wife and Mother based out of Central PA. She has spent 20+ years home educating her three children and tutoring many others.

Blessed with the love for gardening, love for creativity in arts, crafts and design, a loving husband and a large supportive community, Marann felt it was a calling from God to raise her children to be well rounded, spiritually minded, successful adults and seeks to give back to the local community by passing on her expert knowledge to both adults and children alike.

Born in Liberia, West Africa, Marann has lived in the United Kingdom and various states in the US and is excited to present her Magnum opus – a book on the joys and struggles of Home Education aimed at helping and encouraging new and veteran home educating parents alike.

Between speaking and teaching engagements, Marann enjoys cultivating her garden, and spending time with her friends and family.
