Meet Master Blogger Susan Harris

Susan Harris of Garden RantSusan Harris co-founded the popular national team blog GardenRant in 2006, and it’s been winning awards and press attention ever since. More recently, she created two nonprofit resources – DCGardens.com about gardens and gardening in the DC area, and GoodGardeningVideos.org to steer new gardeners to the best YouTube channels. For locals and visitors to Greenbelt, Maryland, she edits and writes for the nonprofit GreenbeltOnline.org.

In print, Susan’s articles have appeared in national publications (Organic Gardening, Fine Gardening, Landscape Architecture), and in local newspapers (the Takoma and Silver Spring Voice and the Greenbelt News Review).

Susan gardened with her mother growing up outside Richmond, Virginia, and settled in the D.C. area in 1971.  Since ’85 she’s been gardening intensely, first on her hillside property in Takoma Park, Maryland and now in Greenbelt.  She attained her Master Gardener certification in Washington, D.C.

Susan has worked with hundreds of DC-area homeowners as a gardening coach – that means working with homeowners one on one, teaching them to create, enhance, and maintain their gardens.  She recently retired from garden coaching.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
