Holly Gardner
Founder and Owner at Endless Gardens

bio3My diverse expertise includes organic and biodynamic horticulture, permaculture, ecosystem restoration, bioremediation, and regenerative landscape design and installation.

My formative years were spent primarily in the U.K., living and working in intentional ecological communities, including Coleg Elidyr, in Wales, and the Ark Permaculture Village, in Ireland. These experiences familiarized me with the practical solutions and tools that are available for humans to coexist in harmony with the natural world.

After finishing a three-year Biodynamic Apprenticeship at Oaklands Park in England, I proceeded to work for more than 12 years in the field of biodynamic and ecologically-centered horticulture, managing CSA ventures and designing and installing permaculture landscapes in Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, and the US.

I hold a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Bard College and a Permaculture Design Certification from The Center for Bioregional Living.

My life, work and educational experiences ultimately culminated in an informed and inspired practice for creating regenerative landscapes. Endless Gardens was created in 2012 as an entity from which to carry out this work. 

Currently, I live in Hudson, New York. When I’m not ‘eco-scaping,’ I’m hiking, taking time to study, or participating in a wide variety of ecosystem regeneration projects in other parts of the U.S. and overseas.

  • Center for Bioregional Living, Ellenville, New York: Certification in Permaculture Design (2011)

  • The Arc Permaculture Project, Burdautien, Ireland (1999)
