Content Editor

Laura Walters is a Content Editor who joined Gardening Know How in 2021. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BFA in Electronic Media and a minor in History from the University of Cincinnati, as well as a certificate in Writing for TV Comedy from UCLA. Laura loves to write and knows the power of good editing—both in film and the written word. She uses her expertise in both fields to create articles, newsletters, and videos that provide gardeners with all the know how they need to succeed.

Laura worked as a documentary producer in college and a freelance video producer and local news producer after graduation. With a naturally black thumb but an irrepressible desire to grow, she has spent the past 10 years trying to learn how to keep plants alive. That’s how she first found Gardening Know How. It was her go-to source for reliable, easy-to-read information. Laura never thought when she was starting vegetable seeds in her college dorm room, that one day she would get paid to read and write about her favorite hobby.

Laura lives in Southwest Ohio, but spends her summers on a lake in Northern Michigan. It’s hard to leave her perennial garden at home, but she has a rustic (aka overcrowded) vegetable patch on a piece of land up north. In her spare time, Laura knits, sings in the church choir, and creates artwork inspired by the natural world. She loves the smell of soil and she thinks it’s magic every time she turns a piece of homegrown produce into a delicious home-cooked meal. Ask her about her famous pumpkin pie!
