A Note from
Garden Goddess Liz
Are you DONE with gardens that lack soul and sophistication? Me too. I believe gardens should speak to the heart, not just the eye. A great outdoor space makes you feel happy, nourished, and reflects your personal style.

As your garden partner, I will help you discover and guide your inner Garden Goddess (or Garden Hero) to unearth what’s possible in your outdoor space. I am passionate about making your garden vision come to life.

Inspiration doesn’t spring from staring at dirt. It comes from YOUR vision, YOUR garden, YOUR way. I’m Liz, your Garden Goddess By The Sea. Together, we can grow the garden of your dreams.

About Garden Goddess Liz

Like you, gardening expert, Liz Donaghy has seen the rise in home gardening and more people getting interested in growing flowers and food for their enjoyment. How difficult is it to grow? Do you need a lot of space? Do some people have the magic touch and others are doomed to failure? Or, could knowing how to do the right thing things in the right order everyone can make gardening fun and easy?

With over two decades of growing and designing gardens and real-life, in-the-trenches garden experience, Liz believes that anyone can grow a fantastic garden with the right system. She understands how to break the process down into smaller, manageable steps so even a beginner can be successful.

Liz, known in Atlantic County as the “Garden Goddess By The Sea” is known for her practical, no nonsense style of communication and she loves to help people realize their vision for their living and growing spaces. Through her 8 year-old company, Liz has been helping to cultivate gardens (and gardeners) in their homes, businesses as well as local school and community gardens through a partnership with Atlanticare’s Growing Green Program. Her business specializes in seasonal container gardens, kitchen and herb gardens, terrariums and fairy gardens. She also speaks regularly to local garden clubs, teaches garden workshops and offers one on one coaching and consulting.

Liz is an active Board member and technical garden consultant to Cookie Till’s Work In Progress foundation who funds and organizes community gardens and programming in Atlantic County. Her Longport garden is featured in the book “Growing a Living Wall” and her rooftop garden when she lived in Philadelphia was a 2 time winner in the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society City Gardens Contest.
