Every garden needs healthy soil

My name is Cristina da Silva

For the past 25+ years, I have been gathering knowledge on the best way to grow healthy, sustainable gardens. I’ve studied, obtained degrees (BSc & MSc Horticulture), attended workshops, read the latest articles,  written articles and columns, talked to gardeners and farmers everywhere for my #groundchat (tweet chat),  as well as experimenting in my own gardens.


This gave me a solid background to know what works in gardens. To create amazing gardens all over the world. Let me tell you a little secret, “It all starts with the soil.”


Now I dedicate my life to paying forward the enormous amount of knowledge and experience I’ve accumulated. But, only for the folk who genuinely want vibrant and climate-resilient gardens, and who choose to be the exception.
