Since an early age, I have had my hand in the veggie garden. I grew up in Washington State on Bainbridge Island, and I went to Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina. There, I worked on the college farm and taught elementary students how to garden. In return, I developed an ever-deepening appreciation for growing my own food.
Since Warren Wilson College, I have been fueled by the desire to live my life as sustainably as possible. I have worked on organic farms in Thailand and designed and managed a permaculture farm on Bainbridge Island. I have a Masters of Sustainability Certificate from Portland State University, a Permaculture Design Certificate from Tryon Creek Farm, and I have taken the Master Gardener course from Oregon State University. Since 2010, I have owned and operated a sustainable landscape maintenance business, Neshamah’s Garden, LLC. I am now the proud owner and founder of pdx.farm.
At pdx.farm our vision to create better access to healthy organic food by growing food in people’s backyards. We want to provide an opportunity for people who want to be able to grow food on their property to make it a reality.
