Starting with my father’s tutelage as a child, I’ve learned the many uses of plants that grow right outside our door. It was also at this age that I was taught to respect the old ways as being those we can count on as well as our own hard work and perseverance.
As a mother, I took my role as caretaker of my family very seriously and that meant feeding them and caring for their health in the best way possible. I sought the natural remedies for their and my own health. Being chronically ill and not finding any relief from the consequences of my chronic illnesses and cancer through conventional medicine, I learned the many ways God’s world can nurture, cure, and help us thrive.
Owning a farm gave me more opportunities to hone these skills and fulfilled my desire to share them with my otherworldly community members.
