Meet Helena

Originally from Sydney, Australia, spending time in Europe, learning to garden there and in Australia, the colder arctic type climate of the East Coast was a real learning curve for me. A huge fan of the great outdoors and Mother Nature, I am a supporter of a greener life and environmentally aware living.

Originally coming to NYC to pursue a career in the performing arts, my passion for gardening sprung to life. I wanted to share my knowledge and love for gardening through writing and informational media, as well as physically designing gardens. All the dirt, sweat and years has given me an awareness of how good gardening is done.

As with anything one does, there’s always the chance to learn more and when ready, the teacher does appear. Lately, I’ve become obsessed with moss, my new ministry and teacher. Moss identification out in the field works hand in hand with  my love for mountain hiking. Growing wild in the forest it keeps me fascinated for hours on the trail.
