Meet the creator of Garden Therapy!
Stephanie is the creator of Garden Therapy, which all started as a personal blog and has bloomed into a rich idea bank of crafty garden projects for creative people. Originally, she started writing to log her garden therapy journey as she healed from disability. She soon connected with others who were doing the same and shifted the blog to focus on healthy living, gardening, and craft projects that could get anyone out in the garden, no matter the color of their thumbs! Read more about Stephanie’s story here.
Stephanie spends her time as a gardener, writer, and artist in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where she has turned her small urban yard into a garden therapy heaven. She is passionate about organic gardening, natural healing, and art as part of life. Her mission is to bring the joys of garden therapy to everyone she meets, which serves her well in her volunteer work as a Master Gardener. Stephanie lives with her son, a cat named ‘Magic’, and 500 worms, all of whom have a big appetite for garden-grown food.
