Author: Tara Nolan


Bio: Tara Nolan is a gardening writer, speaker, and author from Dundas, Ontario. Her first book, the best-selling Raised Bed Revolution: Build It! Fill It! Plant It! Garden Anywhere (Cool Springs Press), was published in 2016. Her brand new book, Gardening Your Front Yard: Projects and Ideas for Big & Small Spaces (Cool Springs Press) was published in March 2020. Tara loves planting a mix of food and flowers in her multiple raised beds and perennial gardens. In 2016, Tara appeared on WNED Buffalo’s Garden Wisdom program as an edibles expert. For six years, Tara was the award-winning web editor of Canadian Gardening magazine’s website. Her lecture experience includes talks at Canada Blooms, Canada’s largest flower and garden festival, Royal Botanical Garden, Toronto Botanical Garden, and Lee Valley Tools, as well as garden clubs and horticultural societies. Tara has also written about gardening for the Toronto Star, CBC Life, Garden Making, The Globe and Mail, Reader’s Digest, Canadian Living, and Style at Home, among others. She is currently on the editorial board of Ontario Gardener magazine. When she’s not in the garden, this card-carrying member of GardenComm, formerly the Garden Writer’s Association, is on her mountain bike or traveling somewhere to check out public and private gardens, always intent on discovering the next big gardening craze. Tara also considers herself to be pretty crafty (meaning creative, not sly), and while you probably aren’t going to learn about her talent with a needle and thread here, you will learn about the amazing (and crafty!) garden creations growing right outside her back door.
