Connie Cao
Connie Cao is a Melbourne-based urban permaculture gardener, homesteader, photographer, and digital content creator. In her backyard (and soon front!), she grows a garden full of veggies, fruits, berries, cut flowers and beneficial plants. Her gardening ethos is that you don't need a big piece of land to have a garden, to start small, and to embrace the imperfect perfection of nature. A gardening journey is always an ongoing one, and she loves documenting and sharing this with others. Connie formalised her interests in gardening by completing the Permaculture Design Certificate with Peter Allen at Telopea Mountain Permaculture (2019) and Diploma of Sustainable Living (with Honours) at University of Tasmania (2022). She also has a Bachelor of Laws (with Honours) and Bachelor of Commerce (majoring in Marketing) at Monash University (2015). In her spare time, you will always find her digging into a good gardening book, browsing the local nursery, or swapping plants with her fellow 'permie' friends. Connie's garden has been featured on the ABC, Design Files and various other online publications. She has previously written two gardening e-booklets and regularly writes both long form articles and short form content for her blog and social media pages.
