Backyard Gardening Series - Margaret Roach from A Way to Garden

Save the Date!

Our 2019 backyard gardening series continues! We are excited to welcome Margaret Roach.

Margaret Roach, after 15 years at Martha Stewart Living and a decade each at Newsday and The New York Times, now writes the nationally acclaimed blog A Way to Garden (dot com) and is author of the 2011 corporate-dropout memoir, “And I Shall Have Some Peace There,” about walking away from “success” for a quieter life lived closer to nature.  “The Backyard Parables” (2013) blends garden memoir and how-to advice.   

An all-new version of her first award-winning book “A Way to Garden” will be published in spring 2019, on its 21st anniversary.  

“Eat Pray Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert said of Margaret: “As a passionate, hopeful and often self-delusional gardener (the only kind of gardener there is!).  Margaret Roach writes with intelligence, compassion, and most of all—sanity. Her work is a blessing.”
