Shirley Bovshow "Eden Maker"

"EdenMaker" and "Foodie Gardener" are my online monikers because I design landscapes and edible gardens. I have 4 kids, 3 dogs and only 1 husband! My passion is design, growing food, and crafting. Watch me on the "Home & Family" show on Hallmark channel as their Garden Lifestyle expert. Other blogs: FoodieGardener.com and GardenCenterTV.com
