BIO: *Retired business/technology teacher, BS, M.Ed. 25 years teaching *Grew up on a farm helping my Grandparents *Backyard gardening over 40 years, annuals, perennials, herbs, veggies, ponds, rock walls, grass *Belong to garden clubs in the area * MassHort, volunteer at NE Spring Flower Show *Presenter at the NE Spring Flower show *Presenter for social groups and garden clubs *Teacher--Garden classes for the Wakefield Adult Ed and in my backyard *Published in the Wakefield Daily Item, Wakefield Observer, and Yankee Magazine a picture of my 3 headed sunflower *Garden Consultant *Garden Designer *Organic Grower--perennials, herbs, rare annuals, heirlooms, reseeders, tropicals MISSION STATEMENT: As a gardener, one of my goals is to bring beauty into my life with flowers and friends. Another goal is to grow my own healthy food from my organic veggie and healthy herbs. And lastly, putting back into nature and our environment to replenish what I have taken out of it through composting. I recycle all kitchen scraps (no protein). Please recycle plastic, glass, and bring canvas bags to the grocery stores...please limit plastic bag use. Ask for paper bags and recycle your newspapers in them at the curb or bring to a recycling bin for newspapers/paper. Help your local schools recycle paper, bottles/cans, etc. THINK GREEN! Another one of my goals is to spread the word about the benefits of BACKYARD ORGANIC GARDENING using many different types of mediums--researching information on horticulture, growing plants, teaching garden classes, garden consulting, garden coaching, garden therapy, public speaking, and belonging to horticulture organizations.Grow Organic/Buy Organic!

Every year a local student receives $500 from our fund since we are over $10,000! I have also donated to PAWS, Wakefield Music Boosters, Wolf Hollow, Liberty Farms and others.
Other monies made from consultations and presentations goes towards upkeep and garden expenses in my organic gardens. I'm always adding more unique plants and use organic fertilizers and compost which is costly. This is my hobby!
I have also donated plant baskets and gift certificates to the following organizations: Wakefield Lucius Beebe Memorial Library Blossoms at the Beebe event, the Hartshorne House, Wakefield Garden Club, and other organizations in the area.
Thank you for your support over the years.
