joyce green managing editorJoyce Benson, founder and contributing editor of GreenStrides, is certified in sustainable design and recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture. “I started blogging (over 6 years ago now!) because I am passionate about landscape design, architecture, art and the environment.

My goal is to share tips, articles and news on these topics, so we can learn from each other and explore our ever-expanding ‘green’ world. Many times, I find inspiration from the innovative ideas and sustainable strategies exhibited in public spaces and realize these cool concepts translate well into transforming my own home and garden into more eco-friendly, livable spaces.”
