Hey friends, I'm Nina.

I learned to farm in northern Indiana, worked on farms and served my clients in Nashville for several years, and now live in South Florida (where I grew up!) on 10 acres with my husband and our chickens. We love having land to call HOME.

If you want to DIY but need to learn the ropes first, I wrote an online Organic Gardening Masterclass- a video series & book of worksheets- to help you plan, build, tend, and harvest from a home garden. This video shows you the basics in 9 minutes.
