Chloe writes for Wild Abundance’s blog, newsletter, and website. In addition, she cooks for some classes, teaches a few others, and jumps in to help out with management and strategy. These roles give her a welcome outlet for the knowledge and excitement she perpetually cultivates around land-based living and a positive future for the planet. Along with working at Wild Abundance, Chloe magically juggles co-managing a 23 acre homestead and small-scale dairy, parenting, lifelong learning, and maintaining meaningful relationships.
Hannah grew up in the city of Boston, but eventually moved to a much smaller, rural town in Western Massachusetts. There, she fell in love with sustainable farming and a do-it-yourself lifestyle. She also found a sense of hope in the extensive and thriving social networks of grassroots farmers, artists, musicians, and activists in her community. This inspired her to learn more about sustainability and DIY living. She wanted to grow her capacity to make positive changes at a community level.
Amy’s feelings of disillusionment with capitalist systems led her to explore organic farming and Earth-based living several years ago. Ever since then, her life has taken on new meaning. Most recently, Amy has spent time working in community service positions throughout rural Western North Carolina. While doing that, she discovered that at a time when we’re more factionalized and isolated than ever, the land and the nourishment that we derive from it is our greatest connector. Amy joined the Wild Abundance team in January 2018 as a social media marketer and has found great joy in working to empower others to live more natural, mindful lives.
Natalie is the founder and director of the Wild Abundance. She’s passionate about teaching and sharing skills that are essential for living harmoniously within the natural systems of the earth. She and her family live at the Wild Abundance homestead campus in the Southern Appalachians. Natalie spends her time harvesting in the wild, building, gardening, planting, putting up food, growing, teaching, connecting with the community, and playing with her daughter. Amidst all of this she’s constantly scheming about how to introduce more people to Earth-based living, while worshiping the beauty around her.
