I have always loved being a magazine journalist, moving over the years from fashion coverage to the world of gardening. And I never looked back. As one of the founding editors of Country Living Gardener magazine, I embraced the gardening lifestyle, and loved being in touch with new and experienced gardeners around the country, serving up articles and products to help their gardens thrive. From there I moved to Organic Gardening, published by Rodale Press, and am happy that today organic is part of the mainstream, embraced by more and more gardeners, as well as shoppers making good food choices. Urban greening and community gardening are now incorporated into my daily activities -- getting my hands dirty with a group of volunteers bringing a garden to life is a joy I love to share.
