Angie has been gardening for almost 30 years and has been saving seeds for half that time. To Angie, the plant life cycle seems irrefutable proof that there is magic in this world, and she loves sharing this passion for seeds and plants with others. Her time is spent on her 13-acre farm in the lovely Hominy Valley area of WNC with her partner, dog, and cat, where she grows things, tends to her native bee habitats, and reads as much as she can make time for.
