Patrice Porter, The Gardening Grandma, brings the old-time survival skill of gardening to the next generations.


I love working with kids and over the past 15 years I've been working as an Educational Associate with the Pre-K in the "Play and Exploration" program, opening new worlds to them including the world of gardening.

I'm an avid gardener and gardening consultant growing in my abundant garden on my acreage in the Boreal forest and helping people with their gardens and growing their own food. I love sharing my knowledge and expertise that has come about from over 40 years of gardening.
