I hail from western Ireland and live in southern California. Raised on my family farm, my mother was a keen gardener and all five of her children are now mad gardeners - from Canberra, to Genova, to Galway, London and Los Angeles.

For a decade now, I have been immersed in California horticulture and have a particular fondness for California native plants and water-wise gardening. I am an avid practitioner of organic garden cultivation and my business The Woven Garden has a reputation for a zeal and passion that produces spectacular produce that cooks and chefs love.
