About Joneve 

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.

Vegetable & Herb Gardening with Joneve - great courses!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 101 and 201 classes with Joneve who spoiled us an abundance of her expert knowledge and tips for our humble organic vegetable gardens. She is quite engaging, entertained many questions, and brainstormed solutions to issues we have encountered. We were blown away with the depth of her expertise and willingness to share. As the former long term resident farmer at a nearby Michelin rated restaurant, manager of farms, combined with international studies abroad - Joneve is the real deal. Her passion and enthusiasm is contagious and we feel more empowered and motivated to put into practice the possibilities learned from Joneve during the courses. We highly recommend her courses and the other offerings at Wild Root Apothecary!
