About me

Location Portland, Oregon
Introduction Welcome to my garden! I moved to Portland, OR in 2010 and promptly began planning my very first garden. Along with my partner in crime, Matt, and our two dogglesons, Emerson and Andy Dufresne, I've been spending A LOT of time out on my patch of dirt. My garden is organic and vegan (veganic), which means along with chemical pesticides, I refrain from using manure or animal remains in favor of natural, cruelty-free fertilizers. I strive to be as environmentally-friendly as possible, which often translates into multi-year plans. I subscribe to the permaculture idealogy, attempting to create a "naturalesque" outdoor space, while putting my urban plot to good, sustainable use. I grow Pacific Northwest native plants and edibles. I'm not a gardening expert, but I am an enthusiast!
