About Me:
Originally from Michigan and retired from education (teaching and administration) two years ago, I'm enjoying being in the garden again and organizing other gardeners. I previously lived and worked on a biodynamic farm in Norway and taught gardening for ten years at a private Waldorf school in Ann Arbor, MI.
