Holly Gardner Bio


Holly Gardner
Founder and Owner at Endless Gardens

bio3My diverse expertise includes organic and biodynamic horticulture, permaculture, sustainable landscape design and installation, bioremediation, and a mastery of soil conditioning.

My formative years were spent primarily in the U.K., living in intentional sustainable communities, including Coleg Elidyr, in Wales, and the Ark Permaculture Village, in Ireland. These experiences familiarized me with the practical solutions and systems that are available for humans to coexist 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 also designing and installing ornamental 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.

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