Laura Leavitt

Laura Leavitt is a writer, teacher, and gardener in Southern Ohio. She focuses her own gardening efforts on raised bed gardening, usually vegetables and herbs, and generally tries to grow at least one new thing every year. Her biggest gardening vice is definitely not weeding often enough, but she always pays for it later in the season when she's pulling weeds even as she harvests her crops.

She is passionate about preserving our natural resources and environment through reducing greenhouse gas emissions and growing local food and often writes about local farm-to-table restaurants for local papers and magazines. Her favorite assignments at Dave’s Garden allow her to combine her love of food with practical gardening tips and advice.

She also works as a volunteer through various local non-profit organizations. For instance, she has worked with the Hamilton Urban Garden Network (HUGS) to create a market garden and space for all residents of low-income neighborhoods of Hamilton to be able to grow their own food. Her writing has appeared at a variety of lifestyles-related websites, including Weddingbee and JustMommies, in addition to her work at Dave's Garden. She can be contacted at Cincinatti Ohio Creative Copywriting, and showcases a variety of her prior publications at that location."
