Hello, I’m Beuna!
In my youth I had the experience of helping (although usually reluctantly) in the family garden. I later raised peppers to sell to the local food co-op. I graduated from Utah State University in Ornamental Horticulture with the plan to be a landscape designer. Later I realized that I loved teaching people how to garden through classes and individual coaching sessions.
While working for other companies and now in my own business I have consulted with hundreds of clients and designed, planted, and maintained such diverse gardens as herb, flower, native, and show gardens for individuals, businesses, and gardens open for public use. I have since focused mostly on helping individuals grow their own food no matter where they live through one-on-one coaching sessions and classes.
The past few years I have taught classes including: Organic Gardening, Herb Gardening, Composting, Organic Lawn Care, Gardening In Survival Times, Wild Edible Plants, and Square Foot Gardening.
What About Herbs? Growing & Using Herbs came about because I wanted to write an herb book that I would want. I think you will enjoy it also. I also had the opportunity to co author Herbs to Know 2: Wild Medicinal & Edible Plants and Herbs to Grow which are unfortunately no longer in print. I next created two decks of Wild Edible & Medicinal Herb Card Decks. Visit my book section for more information or to purchase. Please connect with me for updates including the release of a recipe book for cooking with herbs.
