About Me

Love! Love! Live!
Answering the call of my heart's deepest yearning to live closer to the earth with respect and gratitude. May we learn to live harmoniously with all beings and share the abundance provided! May we have humility.

I am a plant lover and avid gardener. I am interested in meeting people from different backgrounds and hearing about their life experiences. I endeavor to help foster a culture of caring and sharing.

I am an organic farmer by trade. I grew vegetables for thirteen years in Rhode Island, USA. I am passionate about growing food in ways that are in harmony with the ecosystems that surround and support us.

In 2014, I visited eight intentional communities in the USA and one in Haiti. It was an amazing experience leaving me with a lot to ponder regarding what it means to live in community. I am eager to to share my experiences and help nurture more communal endeavors.

Now I am blessed to be stewarding a homestead in Southern Humboldt. I am in the misty midst of redwoods, mature fruit trees, organic vegetable gardens and magical meadows. I love to share this place with travelers when possible.

This summer brought me to my first Rainbow gathering. I am inspired by this expression of human beauty! Thousands of people coming together without defined leaders to enjoy each other and nature is truly amazing!

I enjoy simple living!

I love to dance
