+ HOW GOOD SEED GARDEN WAS STARTED +
It seems to be the norm anymore that whatever you went to college to do you end up doing something completely different. The same goes for me. I went to the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, OH for Interior Design. I really like planning things out, making them orderly, functional, and pretty. However, by my senior year I was obsessed with health and wellness. I graduated and then the market tanked.
While working many jobs through the years, I participated in a community garden, started a couple small businesses that didn’t go anywhere for various reasons, and continued to learn all I could about health, wellness, self sufficiency, and homesteading.
I got married, moved to Indiana and started working at a local retail store where I honed skills in time management, leadership, and merchandising. I continued reading and discovered market gardening- high density planting on small acreage! The store allowed me to do the farmers market while I worked full time in 2017. I left in 2018 to work part time at my local gym and farm full time! This past year was a wonderful learning experience and I am excited about our future goals and the 2019 season.
+ WHERE WILL GSG BE IN 5 YEARS? +
My primary passion is to produce food direct for the consumer- you. While I do sell to Upland Brewing Co, Tina’s Tea House and other local vendors, I want to primarily sell to you and get to know you and your family.
My goal is to fine tune my systems this year and invest in egg layers for next year. I hope to be able to bring pasture raised eggs to market in 2020. In 2021 I plan to invest in bees to be able to bring honey to market in 2022. And that’s all I’ve got planned for now!
