Johanna Silver, Associate Garden Editor, Sunset Magazine
Sunset associate garden editor Johanna Silver is always seeking out the latest movers and shakers in garden design, outdoor living, and sustainable agriculture. But anytime her eyes get too strained from staring at the computer, she heads out to Sunset's test garden, where she designs, builds, and maintains small-scale gardens to be featured in the magazine. Silver's two favorite parts of gardening are seed germination and compost making, and she loves spreading the gospel of each. At home, she can be found digging the dirt out from underneath her nails and enjoying city life in San Francisco.
