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 has a particular interest in finding a new approach to gardening in a changing climate where our perspective needs to shift due to more variable weather conditions such as wetter springs, drier summers, colder winters and more extreme storms. She draws inspiration from our local landscapes and indigenous flora to create wilder, more resilient and naturally beautiful gardens.
