About the instructor and the site (Rachel's garden):
Rachel Freifelder grew up with her father's organic garden, holds a
degree in ecology from Stanford University, and studied herbs at the Pacific School of Botanical Medicine. She has worked on several farms, has taught gardening to all ages since 1996, and offers garden services as Handmade Gardens Edible and Native Organic Land Care.
About the site: Rachel's garden is a seven-year-old organic mini-farm on a 9000-square foot lot in the Cully neighborhood. Rachel and her partner Robert have combined their shared experience in agriculture, ecology and forestry to manage the land for demonstration, teaching and subsistence. It incorporates fruit trees, insectaries, domestic ducks, abundant vegetable beds, medicinal plants and Pacific Northwest natives. Various soil-building techniques are visible, including aerobic composting, cover crops, sheet mulching and on-site animal manures.
