Hiya! This is the website about the Habersham Hacienda, but the actual Hacienda sold March 2019. This site serves as a resume of sorts for my future projects, a bio of the property and how I transformed it, a link to my current column+blog, my commercial writing projects (aka how you can hire me) and a link to the apothecary where you can buy Momma Daisy Oil and other Practical Mystic goodies.
So where did I go? Since April 2019 I've been on the road with my dogs. Mexico mostly. That was always my cash out Plan B, but Mexico today is not the Mexico of my past. Sadly it is a violent, unpredictable Cartel state. Certainly no place for a single gal to be driving around. Or anyone really. I went to Florida a couple times (will I ever learn?) Tucson, TN, Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri. Searching for an off the beaten path town to land. I have (for now) landed in Tulsa. Oklahoma? Yes. It's a pretty cool town.
My decision to sell and leave GA was partly financial and partly exhaustion, I mean, it was 13 years. That's a long time to live in the boonies. And because I was downsizing from 5700 sq ft and 2 residences, I sold the Hacienda furnished. Had another 2 month long yard sale and sold every. last. thing. It is hard to reinvent your life if you're dragging around all your old stuff.
I love telling the story about the Hacienda and sharing what I've learned about organics, farming, greenwashing, sustainability, permaculture gardens, pollinators, chickens, detox from silicone poisoning, immigrants and our agriculture system, remodeling houses, the microbiome of soil, simplifying your life, wellness, pollinator gardens.
Go over here for my new blog. The old blog is here and there's some good stuff in there back to the farming days. I will develop my decade of scribblings and rants about my success and failure into another book at some point.
