June has spent her whole life surrounded by gardeners; first with her parents, who moved frequently due to her dad’s job. Once installed in a new home, the family garden was the next priority. Then with her husband Don Stewart who loves to landscape, there is always an outdoor garden project on the go. While largely self-taught, June has also followed a few courses and devours gardening books and online research. For the past 8 years, she has shared her love of writing and passion for gardening with readers in the Laurentians in her regular “Main Street” column Garden Talk. In an era of climate change with increasing environmental awareness and challenges, she will provide us with an overview of 21st century gardening trends and tools along with some food for thought. June has been a full-time resident of Morin Heights since 1985.
