Annie Spiegelman

Author of Talking Dirt: The Dirt Diva's Down-to-Earth Guide to Organic Gardening

Raised and hardened in the asphalt jungle of New York City, Annie Spiegelman moved to the Bay Area and became a passionate environmentalist and Master Gardener. She is the author of TALKING DIRT: The Dirt Diva's Guide to Organic Gardening and writes a popular garden column in the Pacific Sun. She is a member of the Director's Guild of America and works as a 1st assistant director in the film industry. On her days off you'll find her preaching compost at school gardens, and annoyingly cheering on RIDGWAY, her son's reggae-rock band.
