Hi There!

I'm Emma, the owner, and author of Misfit Gardening which is an urban homesteading blog based in Utah and the voice behind the popular podcast Homesteading & Gardening In the Suburbs. I'm a chemist, organic gardener, permaculture designer, homebrewer, crafter, and suburban homesteader.

I have over 10 years of gardening experience in different growing conditions in the UK and the USA and I have a passion for growing food organically with intensive, permaculture techniques as well as composting and no-dig gardening.

I have a dream to revolutionize how we grow food and reduce waste one yard at a time and show people that you can grow your own healthy, nutritious food and have a great harvest that you can gather in no matter how small your plot!

When I'm not knee-deep in compost, gardening, or drinking tea; I'm found crocheting, brewing beer, or watching Supernatural and Sabrina!
