SECRET GARDEN ALASKA
Three wild Alaskans living and learning on twenty acres of pristine forest. We are new parents who are mad about food, nature, art, and each other. We quit our day jobs to pursue our dreams, and while we may not be making a butt ton of money, our bills are low and we spend everyday enjoying each other’s company.
What We Do
We do our best to live off the land and live symbiotically with other lifeforms.
We eat, juice, and trade the majority of our crops, selling excess to neighbors, restaurants, grocery stores and farmer’s markets.
Salmon is a staple crop in our household. We smoke, can, vacuum seal, and freeze the red gold.

Not to mention how grateful it made me for lawn mowers.Continue reading “Cutting Grass on a Sunny Day”
