Hi I’m Amy Hajec avid gardener, mother & wife. I’m into nutrition, local & organic meat and produce. The slow foods movement, and reclaiming traditional cooking & preparing methods that increase our foods nutrient levels, there by improving over all health.
My current project is a small community garden I’m in charge of. That’s just a fancy way of saying I get to pull the weeds, or tidy up if someone doesn’t. Our community garden was tilled Earth Day 2011, and has 3 farmers, with plans for 2 more. This is my 4th garden, at 3 different locations.
I started gardening with my Great Aunt when I was a about 5. I got to plant my own section, and always asked for beets. So many wonderful family memories are around her garden, and Gran’s dinner table. There was always a rainbow of home make food, down to the pickled beets I helped can.
My goal is to be a modern homesteader, grow as much, and put away as much of my own food as I can. To live gently on the land.
