A former Washington, DC, legal administrator turned full-time homesteader and writer, Tasha’s obsession with great food, gardening, and simple living led her to homestead in beautiful Surry County, North Carolina. There she raises goats, chickens, ducks, worms, and more on a 10-acre property with lots of help from her partner in good living, Matt Miles.
About 1.5 acres of her homestead is also covered with fruit trees and bushes, nuts, a personal vineyard, perennial vegetables, herbs, spices, annual vegetables, and some aquaculture. She uses hand tools, organic matter, and a mix of permaculture, edible landscaping, ecological, and traditional gardening techniques to grow abundant food and natural beauty.
Tasha volunteers with gardening organizations in her community and teaches classes related to edible landscaping and organic gardening. In addition, Tasha is a former market farmer, specializing in growing and selling herbs, spices, and mushrooms.
