About me

I am freelance writer and photographer in Great Falls, Montana specializing in gardening, cooking, local foods, sustainable agriculture, outdoor recreation, Montana history and travel. I’ve been an avid gardener for 30 years, and love teaching readers about growing their own food, raising livestock and home-cooking, as well as sharing my suburban homesteading and outdoor adventures. I'm also working with River City Harvest, our local community gardens, to help new gardeners grow their own nutritious veggies.

Current project

Planting the gardens and helping our community garden folks start their season.

Type of gardener

Primarily edible landscape

Favorite garden activity
