This blog documents a project to demonstrate techniques that maximize the amount and quality of food produced in small backyard and community garden plots using regenerative agricultural techniques.

I draw inspiration from a number of threads in the organic agriculture lexicon, but especially from the legacies of Alan Chadwick and John Jeavons who shaped my early learning about nature-centered gardening long ago in magical spaces tucked into the mountain crannies of northern California.

I once earned a B.S. in International Agriculture with concentrations in Soil Science and Rural Sociology from Cornell University, and went on to do graduate work in Adult and Extension Education.
