About the tutor

Ariel de Ramos is the co-founder of  Vegetawall, a small business focussed on urban gardening in small spaces. Their home vertical garden system attracted attention from their friends and family and so they began teaching the technique in an easy workshop format. Ariel and Liz focus on making gardening possible for renters, people without a lot of space for a garden, and those with mobility or physical restrictions who want to avoid bending while gardening.
