Hey there! I’m Gardenette Chloe Thomson.
I’m passionate about gardening, in particular growing my own food.
I grew up surrounded by a family passionate about organic gardening and cooking their homegrown produce. I’m experienced at gardening in all conditions, having lived – and gardened – on a small farm, in tiny apartments, in crowded share houses and on your average suburban house block.
My love of growing and cooking is infectious and so is my enthusiasm for sharing my knowledge with all generations. I have a degree in Agricultural Science (Hons) and a Graduate Diploma in Urban Horticulture from Burnley, University of Melbourne.
I was a presenter on The Garden Gurus (Channel 9) for 5 years and I’ve worked as a gardening and horticultural public speaker for many years. I’ve written for several gardening publications including The Guru Magazine, Vasili’s Garden and I’m currently a writer for the Good Organic Gardening magazine. My social media profile “Bean There Dug That” also an engaged audience of gardening fans and it’s a place from where I share my love of growing in my OWN garden.
As a mum to 2 little boys – I would like to show, particularly the younger generations, that sustainable gardening, and growing at least some of the food you eat – is possible no matter where you live!
