I am a certified agriculture teacher and principal. In 2009, I started an award winning suburban agriculture program at the largest school in South Carolina here in Mount Pleasant just outside of Charleston. In 2015, I founded the non-profit Growing Minds to educate and empower students of all ages to grow food everywhere. After nearly a decade in the high school classroom, I decided to leave the indoor classroom walls behind and I moved to a small four acre farm and orchard also here in suburban Mount Pleasant. I transformed the property into an educational demonstration farm showcasing various sustainable agriculture practices. I now live and teach at the farm with our free range chickens and three Dwarf Nigerian goats, Willy, Billy and Tina. My favorite spots on the farm are the grape orchard, goat barn and anywhere on my tractor!

We educate and empower individuals to grow food everywhere! We believe that farming can no longer be restricted to rural areas.

There is a time when we must put aside land for cultivation, teaching, healing and preservation. That time is now!

I recommend visiting the farm! We learned some new things about composting, what goats eat, and about growing plants. Our group was 4 adults and no kids but we had a great time talking with Katie and petting the goats!

This experience was FANTASTIC!!! The goats were absolutely adorable and Katie was a phenomenal guide - teaching kids and adults alike through games and hands on experiments.
