Who's Who

On Garden Media's expert panel for the "Talking Trends" Hangout are our two winners from our contest. These two garden businesses were chosen out of dozens due to their creative and effective tactics implementing garden trends to boost business.



gardenerd teaches people how to grow their own food through classes, consulting and food garden design and installation. With the increase in knowledge of GMOs and the use of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers, more and more people want to know where their food comes from and they want to take back control over their food sources.

Gardenerd empowers people to be more self-sufficient, and to reduce pollution and waste one garden at a time.

Christy Wilhelmi is the driving force behind GardenNerd and will be representing the site on the Hangout today.
