Niki Jabbour and Stephanie Beaumont SEA AND BE SCENE And HEARD

It’s ALWAYS wonderful spending time with today’s guest – as our resident EAST COAST EXPERT when it comes to all things gardening – Nova Scotia’s Niki Jabbour has graciously shared her infinite wisdom with SEA AND BE SCENE over the years.

Her wealth of information and her passion for produce have made her a North American celebrity with a work schedule that won’t quit. Fortunately for us, she’s carved out an hour of time to chat about all the amazing things she’s got on the go – including her prolific new garden, her award-winning website, her forthcoming book and so much more.
