As an urban mom with two small kids, Annette is going from supermarket to farm fresh food one step at a time. “In 2009 I vowed to re-channel my grocery money away from mono-crop farmers, processed food companies and animal feed lots. I did not buy foods from outside Washington state until I had exhausted all local options and I gave up out of season foods.

When it was all said and done the garden met all our veggie needs from May (when it was planted) until mid December and then started producing for us again by February. We now have 22 fruits or berries, 2 nut varieties, roots and tubers, vegetables, black pepper, tea, medicinals and countless herbs in addition to our backyard chickens, mason bees and composting worms.”
