Join writer Jenny and Farmer Jim as they tackle the ins and out of Suburban Permaculture and cooking with homegrown foods. Their hope is to shape the constant growth and change of nature into a healthy lifestyle that includes nutritious eating and creating less of an impact on the world around them.
They met in March 2015. Jim has been opening Jenny’s eyes to the world of Permaculture and sustainable living while Jenny has been introducing Jim to a more unstructured lifestyle and a more flavorful palate.
