My name is Lisa Taylor and I’m a garden educator. I have been teaching people of all ages to garden organically for nearly 30 years. I’m a Master Composter and a Children’s Gardener (I began this work as a Master Composter, I really got into rot. I got so good at making compost I had to start a garden so I had a place to use it.) I have written a couple of books – Your Farm in the City and the Maritime Northwest Garden Guide. I developed my Garden Educator chops at Seattle Tilth where I worked for 20 years. While I was there, I taught thousands and thousands of people every year all about the wonders of an organic garden. When peopled asked what I did for a living I would say, “I grow and eat plants with children and the adults who drive them around.”
I have a passion for teaching everyone where their food comes from and how to grow and eat it. I believe that gardening together helps us learn to care for plants, animals and one another. This is a pathway to peace.
