Happily Married and a proud mother to a beautiful, talented and creative adult daughter.
I have had some very different raising and hence some different views of life in general and how to be sustainable even in a big city. I Love to garden and specialize in teaching others how to garden in all kinds of places. I have raised wooden beds that reach to my knees so not only are they deep, but perfect for modified Hugel Kulture gardening. Due to their height - these will be able to be used well into my old age. I am a wild forager, and bring home specimens [when there are plenty] to transplant into a spot in my garden that mimics its placement in the wild.
I am a published author in magazines and newspapers, with editing experience and a 4.0 in my journalism studies back in the olden days. [ I also have a degree in counseling.] I work one on one with folks seeking to have lifestyle changes and to gain control over their consumption of food and to conquer diabetes and other dis-eases that are impacted by nutrition.
I am active in local bartering groups, and historical re-enactment groups. I am basically a mother earth news kind of gal, tree loving, land nurturing, old style pioneering stock bookworm. I relish living on pennies on the dollar and prefer to be a thrift store maven rather then a consumer of bought new items. I am not into consumerism and thanks to my depression era grandparents raising me for a good chuck of my life, I have the experience and skills to teach others how to live better for less.
