It was the fall of 2010 and I was fresh off the Appalachian Trail with my husband and came across Mandy Steward via a mutual friend. I was itching to reinvigorate my creativity after many months of hiking and here was this artist whose words spoke to me. I’ve been a fan of her work ever since! Mandy is an artist and author based out of Oklahoma but she’s also a very fresh gardener! One of the goals of producing this podcast was to eventually showcase gardeners from all skill levels and it was incredibly fun to chat with her about all of the wonder that being a beginner in anything can bring! There was so much within our conversation that I connected to and it was a gentle reminder to myself that no matter how many years we’ve been gardening there’s always something new to learn every year!
