Customer Testimonials

“Your topics are interesting and humorous, insightful, intriguing, honest.”

“You strive to live the things that you teach, and that you are always willing to share not only your knowledge, but to actually research questions to help others in living a more green life.”

“You're my “go-to” person for all questions garden, fermenting, energy….. I figure if you don't know it, you've got a solid lead….. I refer to you as my “organic/heirloom garden, nutrition-foody, math-y fact-checker guru” in certain circles…. seriously, with modern homesteading questions, I check with Laurie before google…..”

Hi Laurie,

Thank you so much for your site. I can tell that you put your heart and soul into it. You are a woman after my own heart. I too love working with the plants and make my own medicines. I was diagnosed with RA 5 years ago, and it wasn’t until I started researching and finding my own path that I began to feel better. Keep up the great work. There are so many people that are benefiting by what you do.

Much gratitude,

Linda Dager Herzog

I am so happy that I stumbled across your website through Pinterest! I am 24 years old and have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I am relieved to know that my fatigue and complete lack of energy is not completely my fault! I knew something was not right and thankfully, I now am aware of my autoimmune condition. I am studying Petroleum Engineering and have a degree in Nutritional Science. I love to cook and I LOVE all things gardening-related but unfortunately that is hard to do here in the city of Houston. Still, I am so excited to learn and read more about common sense home!
