Susan Harris’s discovery of blogging back in 2005 led to a second career as a garden writer. Her work appears in such magazines as Fine Gardening, Organic Gardening, and Landscape Architecture and online for garden centers, including Behnkes, Homestead Gardens and Mahoney’s.
In 2009 Susan brought together garden designers, communicators and growers to form the Lawn Reform Coalition to promote healthier landscapes, a cause she also promotes on her website about sustainable gardening.
Her latest project, launched in March of 2014, is DC Gardens, an all-volunteer campaign to promote DC-area gardens open to the public using photos and videos, and to be a resource for local gardeners.
Susan blogs and gardens in Greenbelt, Maryland, a “New Deal Utopia” just outside Washington, D.C. (Off-topic, check out Greenbelt Live, the community blog she started in mid-2012, and the companion Greenbelt Maryland Youtube Channel.)
