I grew up gardening and caring for a menagerie of animals. Along with working on my own farm, I have volunteered at public gardens and local zoos and aquariums, sharing knowledge about plants, animals, and the environment.
My plant writing celebrates biodiversity and living in harmony with nature through sustainable, organic gardening practices. I hope to introduce you to new (old) varieties and techniques, whether you want to grow herbs on your windowsill, enjoy weekend gardening, or have your own farm.
My animal writing focuses on domestic birds that are traditionally viewed as livestock but which make wonderful pets. I’m currently working on A Garden Fairy Farm Guide to Keeping Pet Chickens.
Garden Fairy Farm
Garden Fairy Farm is a small family farm in the Pacific Northwest on beautiful Whidbey Island. The farm is five acres, two of which are forest. On that limited acreage, Garden Fairy Farm organically grows a wide variety of heirloom flowers, vegetables, fruits, and berries.
Along with an assortment of indoor critters, Garden Fairy Farm is home to goats, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, pigeons, honey bee hives, and an amazing array of wildlife.
You can follow Garden Fairy Farm’s planting adventures at the Garden Fairy Farm blog on the Garden Fairy Farm website.
