What do you hope to get out of this group? Learning? Teaching? Socializing?

I am interested in native food foraging, natural food preparation and storage.also in learning non fire arm self defense, and wilderness survival.

Do you currently have an urban farm or garden? Tell us a bit about it.

I have only been gardening for four years. We live on 1/4 acre in Phoenix. I apply square foot gardening, all organic, I love all the bugs. We grew this year, lettuces, kale, broccoli, herbs, beans, peas, tomatoes, chicory, fennel, chard, corn, sunflowers, blueberries, grapes and carrots. We also just planted an apple and peach tree, and have an orange and lime tree. I currently collect mesquite, figs, pecans and lemons from friends and neighbors. I would like to turn my front yard into a natural habitat for wildlife while also growing more native foods, with possibly another 3 garden beds.

What are your nearest cross-streets?

44th street and Camelback


I am a stay at home mom of almost 5 years. I used to be a personal trainer/massage therapist very involved in naturopathic healing. I believe in listening to nature. I like to read, sew, crochet, cook and garden, camp, hike, swim, bike, run.
