The peas who share this pod…
Catherine’s interest in urban agriculture took root from her volunteer work in food access over a decade ago, when she became aware of the injustices in our food system. She has worked for the Tacoma Farmers Market and Terry’s Berries Organic Farm and was a graduate of Tacoma’s very first Permaculture Design Certificate Course. In her free time she’s an avid belly dancer and fire dancer with a local troupe.
Brian was brought up a DIYer, and has since taken on any opportunity to learn about repairing, renovating, and prettying up just about everything from cars to computers. Now he’s putting those skills to good use as the handy man around here. When not fighting the good fight of preventing another generation raised on kool-aid, pasteurized milk, and cereal, he’s a drummer in an eclectic local band.
Ellie the Adventure Dog is, inarguably, a force. Just ask the chickens. Specifically she’s the chief manager of happiness, the comedian, and the voice of reason to get out of town and play every once in a while. When not herding humans or animals, she enjoys exploring the wild areas around the property. Her favorite vegetables are carrots of all colors.
