About me

Gender Female
Location Oregon, United States
Introduction I thought I was going to be a literature professor, but I ended up becoming an editor at a sustainable lifestyle magazine. It fits. I was born and raised in Oregon, then lived in Kansas for six years, and now I’m back in Oregon. I spend a lot of time thinking about what I’m going to grow in my garden. I believe in real food, getting my hands dirty, supporting local farmers, the magic of perfectly ripe produce, closing the waste loop, sustainable agriculture, fair food policies, community, gardening as soul-enriching work, engaging, composting, lifelong learning, not trying to pretend I'm perfect, deviating from recipes, cooking with loved ones, and our right to know what we're eating. Dirt is cool. Pesticides suck.
