Lyndsey Boekenkamp is a nonprofit professional and outdoor enthusiast living and working in Orlando, FL. Gardening has been a passion of hers since she was a little girl and used to help her mother maintain their family's expansive garden in southern New Jersey.
Lyndsey has been fortunate to nurture many "secret gardens" since then - from forgotten fire escapes in New York City, to unwanted green spaces and community gardens in Connecticut, and unusual raised beds and container gardens in northern New Jersey - each not without its own unique joys and challenges.
During her time in the NYC area, she worked with private clients, served as a horticulturist at a historic home and garden in Maplewood, NJ and volunteered her time at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden teaching families about the joys of plants.
In addition to a background in history and fine art, Lyndsey has more than 10 years of experience cultivating green spaces and earned her certificate in horticulture from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. She is also a graduate of the Floret Workshop.
