I’m a 30-something, free-spirited, nature-loving, dirt-worshiping, kitchen-destroyer, who also happens to be a slow food advocator and an obsessive creator. I currently reside amidst a picturesque background of rolling hills and patchwork fields in Amish Country, Pennsylvania.
My history with plants: In ’91, I grew my first “serious” garden in the vacant lot next to my father’s house. I spent my summer nurturing peas, lettuce, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, beans, and several other veggies into maturity. The feeling I received struck a chord deep within, and I began looking at food (and the system) with an entirely new perspective. Fast forward to 2006; it was during this time in my life when I became
slightly completely obsessed with growing and preserving the majority of my food. The conscious decision was made to cut out all processed, preservative-laden junk, and start cooking everything from scratch. I also began transitioning to a primarily plant-based diet. I aspire to be as self-sufficient as possible, while maintaining a low-impact relationship with the environment.
