In Memoriam

Alison Peck, Founder

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of Alison Peck, owner and creator of Matrix Gardens. Our dear Alison suffered a major stroke and passed away on April 15, 2021. It is a significant loss to the family, the company, the community, and the world in which she lived and created regenerative landscapes that benefit the Earth. We are honoring her by building the landscapes and designs she loved.

The employees at Matrix Gardens have worked alongside Alison for many years; she shared her values of beauty, knowledge, and sustainability with each of us: these were the pillars of her company. Her legacy will live on in all of us and the staff of Matrix Gardens that she believed in, hired, trusted, and mentored to bring her visions to life. We will continue moving through this with grace and ease, and we thank you for your support as we navigate these new waters.

Thank you for being a part of Alison’s vision that will carry on for generations to come.
Love to all from,
The Matrix/Peck Family
