Oh hey there! I’m Annie. Garden coach, planner, and designer. Lover of food, nature, travel, wine, and good books. I am an aspiring minimalist who lives with a very non-minimalist. That would be my handsome husband, Joe, who takes a lot of the pictures for this site. Together we spend our time fixing up our old house, camping, hiking, binge watching excellent shows, and spending slow afternoons or evenings enjoying good food and booze with friends and family. All the while chasing around our two kids and doing our best to be real life adults.
My love of gardening began in New York City of all places. I lived in many areas in the city, but my favorite was the East Village. The area was lousy with community gardens. It was incredible to stumble upon them while walking around the neighborhood. I quickly joined one on my block and fell in love. I met amazing people in that garden. Some who had lived in the area and been a volunteer in the garden for 20+ years, some who were both new to the city and the garden, and some that fell somewhere in between. Everyone came together to care for this tiny oasis. I learned everything from weeding to composting to growing grapes. It was a magical time.
I have since moved back to the Midwest and have continued on with my gardening adventures. We built and maintain a 324 square foot urban garden in Columbus, OH. Growing food has brought me so much joy. It has been the basis for many things in my life including my love of cooking, my desire to take better care of our planet and environment, and even my drive to live more simply and minimally.
About Seed Babies
Thru helping friends and family start their own gardening journeys I have come to realize that so many people want to learn to grow and maintain their own edible gardens. Most don't know where to start or feel overwhelmed by the idea of it. I think that everyone can and should have a vegetable garden. And I want to be the one who helps them get there.
My goal is and always has been to help teach, guide, and inspire people to achieve their dream edible garden that fits into their life and style by giving them the knowledge and tools to confidently get growing.
