Susan co-founded GardenRant and also wrote for national gardening magazines and independent garden centers before retiring in 2014. Now she has time for these projects:
– Creating and editing the nonprofit website Greenbelt Online to serve her adopted town of Greenbelt, Maryland (a “New Deal Utopia” founded in 1937); and managing the Greenbelt, Maryland YouTube Channel. She’s also on the Board of Greenbelt Access TV.
– Video-blogging about hoop dancing on her channel Susan’s Hoop Dance Journey, which launched in 2023.
– Founding two resource websites: Good Gardening Videos that recommends science-based gardening videos on YouTube; and DC Gardens, the nonprofit campaign to promote the public gardens of the Washington, D.C. area, and gardening by locals.
Here Susan rants about anything that misinforms or discourages gardeners – from old-school quacks to mistaken do-gooders to local laws that mandate conformity – and reports on news from the world of gardening.
