What I Do
Work to create a home that I don’t a vacation from. As well as becoming more self sufficient. The goal is to grow and raise as much of the food my family needs as possible. And share the bounty with my neighbors and community.
Paving the way to share the three ethics of permaculture with my neighbors and community: earth care, people care, and future care. I am incorporating the three ethics of permaculture into my daily life and the lives of the other denizens on the farm.
Focusing on well care and improving my own health as well. Education is key to leading a healthier life. Nurse consulting is one way in which I can help others achieve their goals.
Growing, raising, and making things naturally.
Produce, plants, and Herbs
Grown without chemicals
Free range and naturally fed laying hens and ducks.
Consulting and educating about well being.
The majority of farm products come directly from the farm.
A little bit about me.
I am a single mom to two sometimes awesome kids. Honestly one is grown and the other is almost there. I am a registered nurse, herbalist, soap maker, educator, farmer, and budding permaculturist.
I wish I could say that I live in paradise and everything is always perfect but alas reality is that nothing is ever perfect. I have lead an unhealthy lifestyle, something I am striving to change. I have had to recreate myself several times in order to move forward. Through all the ups and downs I have found myself finally. And here I am to walk through this life sharing with you. Hoping that you will gain something from me even if it is only friendship.
“It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.’ Antoine de Saint Expurey.
