Laura gives tips on how to make your outdoor spaces not just beautiful, but useful as well. While lawns are very popular in the U.S., they use tremendous resources to maintain in most areas without much return on the investment. Laura explains ways for homeowners as well as renters to enjoy gardening and reap the benefits of digging in the dirt.

Laura Ruby is an avid foodie enthusiast, sniffing out fresh, local and yummy food wherever she goes. She worked as the Garden Coordinator for the Growe Foundation for the past three and a half years installing gardens and teaching garden curriculum at Boulder Valley elementary schools. She is also the founder and owner of YummyYards, an edible landscaping company, working to co-create more functioning, self-sufficient landscapes, and is a co-facilitator and teacher at the Lyons Permaculture Design Course at the Farmette. When not teaching about growing food, you can usually find her in a garden somewhere. -Kate Bartolotta
