The Urban Potager

About Elizabeth Stewart

Growing up on the farm in Saskatchewan, Elizabeth considered 'gardening' a hateful word - it meant hours of dusty, backbreaking work in the vegetable garden under the blazing sun.  To her surprise, years later in Toronto, she found herself living in a renovated factory studio, on Queen Street West, with a garden!  Specifically, a series of shady terraced beds rising steeply skyward from a basement walkout.  Over several years, she graduated from petunias to polyanthus, and from an avowed non-gardener, to an addict.  Since relocating to a tiny bungalow in the same neighbourhood, she has transformed her back yard into a beautiful and bountiful urban mini-farm, which has been featured in “Canadian Gardening” magazine.  She's also become an active member of the Toronto Master Gardeners, for whom she is a frequent speaker.
