Meipo Martin bio:
Meipo Martin was born in Hong Kong, where she started growing houseplants and herbs on the apartment windowsill.  In 1998, she moved to the United States.  In her new garden, her love for plants came into full bloom and she became a Montgomery County Master Gardener in 2015. Meipo believes gardening should be accessible to all, and it does not have to be expensive or hard.  To share her knowledge, Meipo gives a variety of presentations on gardening methods for the master gardener organization.  When she is not gardening, Meipo is a wife, an Aikido instructor, a woodcarver, a blogger and a sewist.
