The Gardening Gal
"If there is anything that I know in life, it is gardening and there is nothing I love more than to inspire this passion into others homes too"
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Hi, I'm Sally or otherwise known as Sal the Gardening Gal. My favourite things in life can all be found outside in nature; in the ocean, the bush but mostly in the garden, growing nutritious food for my family.
I first picked up the gardening tools in 2013 while I was living overseas in the UK. Having worked in healthcare for many years I was studying to become a Paramedic, that was until I was presented an opportunity to garden in West London. Working outside and in beautiful spaces with a team of incredibly skilled Horticulturists, the gardening bug soon caught up with me and I quickly realized that I was destined to spend my days happily digging in the dirt.
FROM PARAMEDIC TO HORTICULTURALIST
Returning home to Australia I moved myself from lush QLD to the sandy, windy, beautiful state of WA and that's when "Sal the Gardening Gal" was born. I changed my studies from Paramedicine to Horticulture and have never looked back. While in Perth I created my own gardening business, servicing a modest number of homes and solidifying my love for Horticulture, particularly here in WA. I have been busy working in many roles since; with grapevines in the SW of WA, supervising gardening teams for boutique landscape companies in Perth, creating thriving edible gardens in remote aboriginal communities with the EON Foundation and very recently settling down with my family just outside the coastal town of Geraldton.
I have now become a mother (the best thing I have ever grown) and have a deep belief that having your very own veggie patch at home can bring a whole range of important benefits to your life.
Have peace of mind by getting in a professional
