I teach gardening. I share my love of growing and I tell the stories of other gardeners.
Me and Gardening
I started gardening when I was little, helping my dad in his garden. I always loved things like wheelbarrow rides, but then I started to want my own space. One year I grew 69 varieties of tomatoes. One year I had 21 types of mint. One year I had a three-pound tomato! This year I had over 120 varieties of tomatoes…on a city lot, here in Toronto. (I garden on the roof too!). You can read more about the fun I have in my garden on my blog.
Last year I had a big neighbourhood plant sale in the spring, and over the summer sold vegetable baskets to neighbours. I love it!
I am 13 years old. So it’s part-time!
I want to help people, especially young people, see how fun gardening is.
I do this by communicating: I have two gardening books, I give gardening talks and workshops, and I co-host a gardening radio show and a video series.
