Hello!  My name is Erin and I love to garden.  Like most "garden-nerds" I started by plunking a few plants into a bare patch of dirt that desperately needed cheering up, and lo and behold... they grew!  Plants are so marvelous, aren't they?  By the next spring I was keen to learn more, so I got myself a job at Arch Greenhouses in Edmonton where I spent four seasons learning about all sorts of annual and perennial nursery stock and taking my (many) favourites home with me to see how they did once they got their roots in the ground.  During this time I also received a Bachelor's Degree in Environment and Resource Studies from the University of Waterloo where I was lucky enough to be able to pursue my passion for plants through research and practical coursework in ecological restoration, urban agriculture, aquaponics, green roofs and more!  Over the last few years my own garden has grown in size an scope, and I began to get requests from friends and acquaintances for help with their yards and gardens.  So, without further ado, this year I am launching my own gardening company, The Bee's Knees.  Here's to doing what you love to do!
