Joneve Murphy has been farming for restaurants, markets and home cooks for more than 20 years. She settled in Virginia in 2009, working for a few years in Upperville before starting a farm for a Michelin 3 star restaurant in Rappahannock.
In 2014 she took a 2 year sabbatical for a mix of learning and teaching on farms in 18 different countries growing everything from vegetables and fruit to coffee, coconuts and more. She worked and lived on more than 200 farms and learned invaluable lessons on growing in various climates and conditions using both traditional farming methods as well as modern techniques.
She started bringing art into the garden in 2017 with mosaic plantings and natural structures. These structures provide support for plants and points of interest within the garden.
In 2021 she started her journey with botanical pigments by planting her first indigo plot. She has evolved her practice since then growing, foraging and painting with botanical inks.
