Kevin and I both grew up on farms. I grew up in a small town NW of Madison: Plain, WI (pop. 700) and Kevin in Platteville, WI.
When we met we both lived in Madison but it took no time to realize we both loved the outdoors, gardening and caring for animals.
We are both very much connected to Madison and the surrounding areas. For the past 21 years, Kevin has worked in and around Madison in the food industry. Occasionally I volunteer at Heartland Farm Sanctuary near Verona, WI.
Weekends are spent doing projects around our farmette. Most days out of the year, you can find us in the garden or building birdhouses. When the weather turns cold, days are spent planning for next year's garden.
My love of plants started at a young age. I was always digging in the dirt alongside my mom. This has evolved to a fondness of herbs and medicinal plants. I have completed courses at The Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine along with The Herbal Academy.
Most recently I received my formulators certificate for Organic Cosmetic Science through Formula Botanica.
