Avid Gardener, Artist, and Community Leader
Our Gardening Journey
Jan Detter has been gardening in her grandparents’ vegetable patch since she was a child. After leaving Catawba County for art school, she remained in touch with gardening as a young tapestry weaver who wanted to create vegetable dyes for her weavings.
In her professional life that spans 50 years, she worked as a weaver, an artist in residence in mosaics, an arts administrator, a gallery owner, and a creativity & innovation professor for Wake Forest University. She still gardens, but not for textile colors or food. These days she gardens for her soul and her health. As she says, “You don’t stop gardening when you get old, you get old when you stop gardening.”
