Meet the Gardener – Jeanne Grunert
Hi, I'm Jeanne Grunert. I'm your host here at Home Garden Joy. I'm a Virginia Master Gardener, herbalist, and writer. I've been gardening my whole life, first in a tiny urban backyard in raised beds, pots, and containers, and now on a 17 acre organic farm in Virginia called Seven Oaks. I'll teach you everything I know about growing fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. I'm glad you're here!
