Hi nice to meet you! My name is Johanna(she/her)& I'm a horticulturalist, garden designer, forager, illustrator and aspiring herbalist living in Edinburgh, Scotland.


Currently I'm finishing a degree in Horticulture with Plantsmanship. 

Thank you for visiting my



Please get in

touch if you have

any questions.

The natural world plays an important part in my art and spiritual practice. Through sharing my nature journals and botanical drawings I hope to show that the small things in life can bring great joy.


My interest in permaculture developed through a love for nature and a concern about environmentally harmful horticultural practices. During my degree I thought there must be a better way to grow and design gardens, which naturally led to me to a permaculture design course.

I'm particularly interested in growing food and gardening in the city and am involved with several local growing projects. If you're local to Edinburgh why not help with the King's Buildings Permaculture Garden for example!


Below you can find some of my permaculture garden design work:
