Joyce dreams of city streets lined with fruit and nut trees, an orchard in every park and a garden in every yard. Seeing each yard as a possibility space, one yearning to burst free from tightly controlled grass and foundation plantings to become a beautiful, biodiverse, place populated with edibles, natives and companionable exotics. Raised on a farm where her family grew, foraged and preserved enough produce to last the year, she now experiments with edible forest gardening on a lawn-free quarter acre lot. Joyce teaches, coaches and writes about edible landscaping, forest gardening and renaturing our cities. She is currently helping design and build Kingston’s first two public edible forest gardens. Any day she gets her hands dirty, either in the garden or in the kitchen, is a magical day.
