Hey Gardener, I’m Maggie
I’m so glad you’ve found your way here!
I’m a Canadian gardener from the Manitoba Prairies (Zone 3b), passionate plant mama, backyard chicken-keeper, co-host of The Grow Guide podcast and founder of From Soil to Soul.
Growing my own food became a key part of my life in 2016. That year, my now husband surprised me with a greenhouse for my birthday.
I knew very little about gardening and naively jumped in head first. Right away, I fell completely in love.
Since then, we’ve expanded our garden, added chickens to our homestead, built dozens of raised beds, created a three-bay composting system and built a new greenhouse…with at least a dozen other projects in there I’m sure I’m missing!
When I’m Not In The Garden…
You’ll likely still find me on our little Prairie homestead with my husband, Justin and our dog Pepper. Even though I grew up in the city, I feel like the country life is where I belong now.
I love spending time outside hiking and exploring the trails near our home. I’m also a lover of yoga, running, Peloton and pilates.
Justin and I are always tackling a new project, both in and out of the garden. We love home renos and DIYs. You’ll likely find us enjoying a cocktail while working on something of the sort.
What else can I tell you? I’m a bit of a tea addict (we have an entire drawer in the kitchen dedicated to tea), I love travelling and spent lots of time travelling India and South-East Asia in my early 20s and my background is in marketing & communications.
I’m also an avid cook and love creating new, healthy plant-based recipes using my garden harvest. Many of which you’ll find here on the blog!
