Welcome to livinginoz's Member Page
My name is Jill Henderson and I have been a Gardenweb member since about 1998.
I am an artist, author and naturalist. I am an amateur herbalist and botanist, as well as a life-long organic gardener and seed saver with a passion for sustainable agriculture and local food production.
I have studied wild edible and medicinal plants for nearly 20 years and I give workshops that teach gardeners about current global challenges presented by bio-engineered food crops and how participants can grow and save open-pollinated heirloom seeds.
I have written three books, including The Healing Power of Kitchen Herbs, A Journey of Seasons and The Garden Seed Saving Guide.
I currently author a blog called Show Me Oz: The Very Best of the Ozarks at http://showmeoz.wordpress.com that focuses on building community around sustainable ideals relevant to the people of the Ozarks region of Missouri and Arkansas.
