owner/ consultant/ designer/ landscaper/

installer/ welder/ carpenter

 

I am a WELDER and FITTER with experience in the trade for over 10 years working in IRELAND, GERMANY and CANADA. I took a break from welding to meet my future wife in Finland (I know, our story is a bit confusing). After traveling Europe we settled in Ireland for a while, where I worked on a dairy farm taking care of the cows and maintaining the equipment. This change of lifestyle broadened my horizon and still influences me to this day. When I moved back to Canada I went back to my trade. I am extremely proud of my wife for pursuing her life's passion and I am excited to help and support her in any way possible. I love to build and create with both metal and wood. For the first four years of my career I worked for a fencing company, where I learned how to measure out, build, line up and install all types of fencing. I spent the next four years refining my stainless steel TIG welding skills in the water works sector. After working various jobs and going to school to learn culinary arts, I was then fortunate enough to meet my lovely wife and travel through Europe. The rest is history.

I am the LANDSCAPER, INSTALLER and BUILDER here at My Nordic Garden. By building customized cedar raised beds, trellises, benches, gates and fences I can beautify your kitchen garden. I'd be very happy to show you all of these possibilities.

co-owner/ consultant/ designer/ gardener/

garden coach

I am a garden coach and designer who is growing an abundant kitchen garden in Eastern Ontario. I grew up surrounded by gardens. My family surely lay the seeds for my passion for nature and gardening. I studied biology and geography in Germany and worked as a teacher for three years. But that was not what I wanted to do. I quit, became a WWOOFer and worked as a gardener on two different farms in Germany and Ireland, where I learned so much by doing what I loved most. In 2020 I learned about GARDENARY, and the kitchen garden movement. All of a sudden my dream job had a name: garden consultant and I became a certified Gardenary Garden Consultant in 2021. The most important job as a garden consultant is, to take all the worries about how to start and maintain a kitchen garden off your shoulders. I am continuously extending my knowledge about general garden design and maintenance. Edible landscapes, food forests and pollinator gardens are a perfect addition to each kitchen garden and I find it important to combine all of those aspects into aesthetic and productive green oases.​ By sharing our own garden journey in the blog posts I hope to encourage you to  get your own project going. You can reach out to me at any stage of your garden development and I will support you and the individual needs of your garden.

A Passion for Growing Greener

My Nordic Garden is on a mission to make our world a little bit greener by bringing kitchen gardens back into everybody's life.

We have all been there - helpless, sad, desperate about the state of our environment and the feeling like we can't change it. But, in fact, everybody can do something! By setting up your own kitchen garden you reduce your carbon footprint and support biodiversity while eating your homegrown organic vegetables. Everything is possible, we just need to do it! My Nordic Garden is here to help you to succeed in your goal to green up your life.

Now you might ask yourself: What is a kitchen garden?

A kitchen garden is a herb, vegetable and fruit garden, that is usually not bigger than 200 square feet. Our kitchen gardens are generally raised beds to make tending easier. It will be the center of your garden that provides you with fresh greens for your daily meals. But a kitchen garden is also a place to relax, enjoy nature and connect with friends and family.
