Joan Stevens loves plants
She is a botanist and ethnobotanist by training and a gardener by choice. She guerilla composts and works to improve the soil wherever she can. Joan teaches gardening, permaculture, and science classes in a variety of settings and is currently a biology instructor at Pasadena City College. She has two boys who are the inspiration for Two Suns Farm, an experimental micro-farm in Pasadena. Her most recent passions are designing year-round cutting gardens and growing food in our challenging climate.
