Willi Galloway is an award-winning radio commentator and writer. Willi began her career at Organic Gardening magazine, where she worked her way up from editorial intern to West Coast Editor. She moved to Seattle in 2003 and became an active participant in the urban agriculture movement, earning her Master Gardener certification in 2004 and serving for six years on the board of directors of Seattle Tilth—a nationally recognized nonprofit that teaches people to cultivate a healthy urban environment and community by growing organic food. This work introduced her to hundreds of other urban gardeners, and like many of them, she has grown food in untraditional places, including on the roof of an apartment building, at the Interbay P-Patch (an acclaimed community garden right in the middle of Seattle), and in the sunny front yard of her home.
Willi writes about kitchen gardening and seasonal cooking on her popular blog, DigginFood.com, and pens the weekly column “The Gardener” on Apartment Therapy’s Re-Nest blog. Each Tuesday morning, she offers vegetable gardening advice on Seattle’s popular NPR call-in show, Greendays. She also teaches a joint gardening and cooking class with James Beard Award–nominated chef Matthew Dillon at the Corson Building in Seattle, and hosts an online garden-to-table cooking show, Grow. Cook. Eat., with her husband, Jon. Their garden has been featured in Sunset magazine. Willi currently lives and gardens in Portland, Oregon, with her four chickens, Inky, Clyde, Bumble, and Boo Boo, and her lab, Domino.
