The Story Behind In The Garden With Susan

It all started in 2008 when I was a raw vegan and wanted to nourish my daughter and I with living foods that were fresh out of the garden. I decided to move to a farm and grow my own food. With very little gardening experience, I found myself standing before a 2 acre piece of land that was tilled and ready to plant.

My experiences in that garden were filled with trial and error. I devoured all the information I could find about growing and joined the Seeds of Diversity and Seed Savers Exchange. I began to save seeds and collect rare and endangered heirlooms. A small seed company flourished during that time and soon the farm sold and we moved to British Columbia.

I find myself on the land once again and able to grow and create gardens. The journey of collecting rare and endangered heirloom seeds is once again a reality and I invite you to join me as I learn and share knowledge of the gifts that can be found in the garden.

I am an avid seed saver and love running barefoot throughout the garden. Always on the look out for endangered heirlooms, I can spend hours reading the seed exchange directories.

I am finishing a Digital Business Management Diploma course at the present moment and this podcast is part of my project in creating this website.
