Rebecca has been gardening on and off since age 8, and has been a member of Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton since 2005. Her small suburban garden is certified by the Canadian Wildlife Federation as a wildlife habitat. Rebecca grows a dozen or more varieties of heritage tomatoes every year. Her garden design includes elements of permaculture and she has recently begun experimenting with biodynamic gardening techniques. Rebecca’s gardening addiction is enabled by her loving husband Richard and a collection of very spoiled rescue cats.
