The Founder

Tanya Bartels has always loved plants and felt drawn to nature from an early age.  Her journey from gardener to guide began when she moved into a home without a garden.  While transforming her new space she felt herself changing and, like plants that reach for the sun, she became aware of how to direct this new energy.  After completing the horticulture program at UCLA and an in depth course on Permaculture in Cuyama, CA, it became clear that a new path was before her, a way to share her passion for gardening.  Bartels now owns and runs the Golden Garden in Long Beach, CA where she can be found teaching workshops and helping customers find the right plants for their homes.
