About Andrea

Hi! I’m Andrea Bellamy, a home and garden writer based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (that’s Zone 8B for you horticultural types) and Heavy Petal is my blog. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook (here for my blog and here for my book), Pinterest, and in every issue of Edible Vancouver.

At its heart, Heavy Petal is simply about gardening from a West Coast, urban organic perspective. There’s a focus on garden design here – especially a tendency to covet well-designed products and decor. You’ll also find an emphasis on growing your own vegetables and other sustainable practices, always with a focus on small, urban spaces.

My book, Sugar Snaps and Strawberries: Simple Solutions for Creating Your Own Small-space Edible Garden, was published in January 2011 by Timber Press. I can’t wait for you to read it!

I welcome your comments and feedback, and try to respond to everyone.
