Emma is a Kenneth Myer Innovation Fellow for 2023 and the Founder of The Heart Gardening Project (THGP) in Melbourne.

Through THGP, Emma revels in connecting the dots between people, ideas and various fields of expertise, connecting to nature through her street gardening, getting completely covered in dirt and creating positive systemic change. Emma has written and self-published a book, Melbourne Pollinator Corridor Handbook, and has had her words and images appear in numerous publications including Landscape Architecture Australia’s Landscape magazine. 

In addition, Emma has been a professional pianist, teacher and performance coach for the last 15 years and her 12-year journey through Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has helped shape her to be the person she is today.

“I stand by the fact that care in particular care of local communities of humans, plants and critters is hugely missing in public realm and adding it is absolutely transformative –
on so many levels.”
