I hope to learn more about container gardening in order for my husband and I to continue to grow some of our own food.
Growing year-round using season extension techniques, building healthy soil using cover crops or sheet mulching.
Improving water quality for drinking water and irrigating homegrown plants. Rainwater harvesting, finding sources for repurposing discarded materials into raised box beds, compost bins, etc.
Native to the Pacific Northwest, I'll be relocating to Lacey (in February) after living on a farm as a resident caretaker near Portland, Oregon. I've developed a love and passion for sustainable agriculture and seasonal eating.
