Bio

Rebecca Last has been gardening on and off since
age 8, and has been a member of Master Gardeners
of Ottawa-Carleton since 2005. Her small suburban
garden is certified by the Canadian Wildlife
Federation as wildlife habitat. Rebecca grows a
dozen or more varieties of heritage tomatoes every
year. Her garden design includes elements of
permaculture and she has recently begun
experimenting with biodynamic gardening
techniques. Rebecca has been honoured by the
Ottawa Horticultural Society with: the Mary Bryant
Award for use of native plants in garden design
(2014); the Members’ Appreciation Award (2015);
and the Ontario Horticultural Association Service Award for meritorious service
to horticulture (2017). In 2018, Rebecca received an Ontario Volunteer Service
Award in recognition of her ten years of service with Master Gardeners of
Ottawa-Carleton. Rebecca’s gardening addiction is enabled by her loving
husband Richard and a collection of very spoiled rescue cats.
