About the Author
Nell Foster is the founder of Joy Us garden. Growing up on a small farm in Connecticut’s picturesque Litchfield County, she started gardening at a very young age and a home greenhouse kept her “in the dirt” even in the snowy winter months. “I love looking at gardens and I love being in the garden… it’s in my blood.” She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Landscape and Environmental Horticulture.
Her horticultural career has taken her from the East Coast to the West – from Boston and New York City to San Francisco and now Santa Barbara. She has been employed as an herb propagator, interior landscaper and nursery salesperson. She owned Nell Foster Designs in San Francisco for 16 years installing and maintaining residential landscapes as well designing and installing commercial Christmas displays – she loves glitter as much as she loves dirt! For many years she worked on the Annual Macy’s Flower Show in San Francisco and the Marshall Field’s Flower Show in Chicago. Inspired by nature and all things creative, for Nell, environmentalism is a passion.
Along with keeping busy with Joy Us garden, she also volunteers for various causes. You can find Nell in her organic, drought-tolerant garden or crafting in her garage in Santa Barbara or perhaps traveling the world looking for inspiration.
