Meet Master Gardener Teena Spindler, a home and community gardening enthusiast from Southern California.
In 2012, Teena was named a Home Depot/Scotts Miracle Gro Gardeniere, which has enabled her to share her love of gardening through YouTube videos highlighting fun, easy projects anyone can do in their backyard.
Teena's blog, Thyme to Grow, hopes to inspire and teach home gardeners to create amazing outdoor spaces that they love.
Teena became a Master Gardener through the University of California almost 10 years ago and is currently the Master Gardener Chair of the Orange County Great Park's Farm & Food Lab where she teaches gardening enthusiasts of all ages how to grow.
As a master gardener, Teena volunteers weekly at Centennial Farm and consults with schools on creating educational gardens. She is also a master composter, and regularly delivers talks on composting, edibles, California native plants, and other popular gardening topics to gardening clubs and conferences.
