About Stacey Hirvela

After working as landscaper while she earned her degree in linguistics from the University of Michigan, Stacey realized her calling was in the garden. She attended the New York Botanical Garden School of Professional Horticulture in Bronx, New York, interning as a rooftop gardener in Manhattan for designer Jeff Mendoza. Upon graduation, she became the second female to serve as horticulturist at the former Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park. In 2005, she joined the editorial team at Martha Stewart Living, where she developed, wrote, and edited garden content for the magazine and co-hosted Homegrown, a call-in program on Sirius Satellite Radio. In 2011, she joined the marketing team at Spring Meadow Nursery, the company behind Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs. There, she aims to educate and inspire gardeners of all levels of skill and experience. She is based in west Michigan.

Stacey's first book, Edible Spots and Pots, was published in March 2014 by Rodale. It can be ordered from AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-A-Million, and Indie Bound.
