Lisa Colburn

Lisa Colburn is the award-winning author of The Maine Garden Journal: Insider Secrets from Maine People Who Love to Put Their Hands in the Dirt.

She was born and raised in a rural community in extreme northern Maine where it seemed everyone gardened. Through the years and many careers, Lisa's “constant,” the one thing she was never without, was gardening.

Lisa has been active in organizing garden education programs and frequently speaks on a variety of ornamental gardening topics. She has a passion for very tiny alpine plants and extremely large-leafed plants. Lisa's ornamental and food gardens expand yearly because "there are always new plants to try." There's no place she would rather be than in her garden.
