Marion Owen is a master gardener, photographer, entrepreneur, and New York Times bestselling author. She was recently honored with a Women of Distinction award by Soroptimist International of the Americas. And that's just the tip of the carrot...
After eight years at sea as a seaman and merchant marine officer, Marion found a home in 1984 in Kodiak, Alaska. Switching her focus to the land, Marion became a master gardener and garden writer.
In addition to hands-on garden experience, Marion co-authored Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul, which spent three months on the New York Times bestseller list Like the book's subtitle, "101 stories to sow seeds of love, hope and laughter," Marion embraces a win-win attitude in all she does.
In her published articles, the UpBeet Gardener newsletter (with subscribers in 50 countries), her award-winning UpBeet Gardener radio show (hear it at www.upbeetcommunications.com), and on her plantea.com Web site, Marion covers small business how-tos, healthy living tips, organic gardening, world events and trends, and environmental issues.
As the Fearless Weeder for PlanTea, Inc., Marion also developed and patented PlanTea®, the organic fertilizer in tea bags; available online and in select stores.
Marion's world is also where she finds beautiful subjects to photograph, from snowflakes to underwater salmon. For almost 20 years, her award-winning images have been featured in or by National Geographic Traveler, Business Week, Better Homes and Gardens, TIME, ALASKA magazine and Pillsbury, Inc., to name a few.
A gifted teacher, Marion developed a popular series of photography and gardening courses through the University of Alaska. Students testify to her ability to apply life's lessons to any subject or situation.
An entertaining and thoughtful speaker, Marion combines her motivational speaking and talents in presentations and workshops (see list of presentations below) for small businesses, associations and trade shows, as well as addressing groups as a keynote speaker. Audiences find her inspirational, fun and thought-provoking.
Born and raised on Puget Sound in Washington State, Marion and her husband Marty enjoy exploring Kodiak Island on their boat through their business, Galley Gourmet, which provides gourmet dinner cruises and multiple-day trips. Marion loves to kayak, hike, make fruit wine, read, develop new recipes in the kitchen and, yes, weed!
