I’m proud to be included in the recent issue of Shameless Magazine, an independent magazine for strong, smart, and sassy teen girls that breaks the mold of the typical diet tips and beauty trends magazine.
I interviewed with writer Caroline Pelletier on growing food which can be found on pages 18-19.
Here’s what I said in response to her question, “Why is gardening fun and fulfilling?”
Gardening just IS fun. I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t fun. Because it can also be hard work and challenging. It’s problem-solving, and learning patience. It’s learning to accept failure as a part of learning. It’s becoming an observer. That part can be really exciting, especially as you make discoveries or come to understand and appreciate things in a new way. It’s creating space for wonder in your life and finding that part of your child brain that may have been lost or crushed in the challenges of adult life.
