REVIEWS – What others say about this workshop:
“I would definitely recommend Nadia’s workshop, as she is a very inspirational and like-able person with a hungry thirst for knowledge of all things natural. She gave us very useful tips about growing a garden in small spaces and was very willing to answer any questions put forward by the participants.” – Denise Farrugia
Nadia discovered her passion for nature when she received her first plant at age 6. From then onward, her love for plants took over her entire house and life. She left a senior management position to heal herself through gardening and started her own business Gardenscapes Gardening Service, in 2018, to show others how to garden using simple tools and natural methods without the use of harmful chemicals.
Nadia has 30 years hands-on practice in small house gardens, roof gardens, yards and balconies. She has attended several courses including: ‘The Permaculture Circle’ by Geoff Lawton and ‘Intro to Permaculture’ at the Oregon State University, among many others. Her specialization is focused toward the Mediterranean Climate and addressing arid conditions.
