Terri Paajanen has been living on 5 acres for the past seven years, growing a wide mix of fruit, vegetables, herbs and even a few apple trees in her gardens. Before that, she worked hard to produce food in various small city lots, containers and balconies. Over the years, she's honed her backyard agriculture skills and learned the tricks to a successful garden without the heavy use of chemicals or synthetic products. Terri has a B.Sc in biology and botany and has mastered the fine art of putting bushels of food on the table every year. She is looking to expand her home’s acreage and plans to experiment with nut trees, more fruit and joining a new farmer's market.
