Earth Mama
A bit about me:
I'm a nurse, health counselor, photographer and writer, returning to my Midwestern roots on a small farm in upstate New York. Together my boyfriend and I garden, keep bees, make maple syrup and try to be good stewards of our 40 acres of land. Chickens, goats and solar power might be coming in the future. I also hope we can eventually make a contribution to the local food movement in our area, as well growing and producing food for ourselves.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Sweet potato, apple and sausage casserole
Currently reading:
Black Elk Speaks and The Sound of Paper
Currently listening to:
Windchimes outside on the back porch
My latest DIY project:
Restoring an old attached greenhouse

Hi, Jacqlyn. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us. I hope you’ll find plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too (maybe on restoring your greenhouse?), in our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
