Gardening optimization – Getting the most out of your garden

Emily Kelly is the writer behind This Little Hilla blog about slow living and getting back to her roots. She spent her summers gardening to put herself through school and holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Guelph in International Development and a Master’s Degree from the University of Ottawa in International Development. After school, Emily spent nearly a decade working for the Department of Foreign Affairs where she received an award from the Privy Council for her involvement in the response to the earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Today, she holds her dream job as a stay-at-home-mom and lives in Kemptville with her husband and two daughters where she is living out her wildest fantasies by cultivating compost, saving seeds and learning to feed her family with the food they grow on their own land.
