Elvira Hufschmid

Garden Expert and Head Farmer

I am a certified horticulturist with a masters degree in Fine Arts. I have been a life-long fan of organic food and have 20 years of experience with organic gardening. I combine my deep passion for my art practice with my vegetable garden design work – these practical and aesthetic capacities translate into beautiful food gardens.
I envision food gardens and herbal gardens as a model for a sustainable life in the city.
