Joanne Diver is from the NSW regional town of Albury and founded the Backyard Garden Enthusiast in 2018.

As a micro seed farmer growing Australian native flowers and grasses, Joanne has built her business around the joy of noticing the smaller things in life and reaping the benefits of being outdoors and in nature.

Joanne started selling seeds, dried flowers and handmade garden-inspired ceramics after finding herself in a position where she was forced to reinvent herself and her career. She says that establishing a business has given her a sense of purpose and worth that had been eroded.

“It has provided me with the opportunity to create a business that reflects my ethics and values” she says. “whilst allowing me the flexibility to be creative and continually inspired by the world around us.”
