Elaine Vida, landscape designer, horticulturist, freelance writer and artist
I was nearing 40 when I decided it was time to take the advice of all those self-help books and make what I love to do, gardening, into my career. I enrolled in a correspondence course at the University of Guelph and 5 years later I had my horticulture diploma in landscape design. 
During my studying years I was working as a nursery/greenhouse manager. 
For the last two years I’ve been working as a designer for a landscape company that specializes in natural granite landscapes. 
Not being able to contain my enthusiasm for gardening I began writing articles for a local newspaper and giving seminars for horticultural groups. What next? Maybe the internet?
