Less Noise, More Green: Me/Contact/Copyright


I was born and raised in England and now call New England my home. I'm interested in exploring a more meaningful partnership with the land and  in learning lessons from the past, when people and their food were not strangers and when food was the center of family and community life.

I live in the suburbs on a five thousand square foot lot. Urban agriculture certainly has it's challenges but when it works, boy is it rewarding. My husband and two teenage children think I'm a little nuts. We're not always on the same page but it's always interesting!

Less Noise, More Green is a quote from JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit.
".. long ago in the quiet of the world, when there was less noise and more green..."

This blog is about finding the quiet and learning skills to bring us closer to the green.

I would love to hear from you. You can contact me at:
