Alison was born and raised in in the Puget Sound Basin. (Seattle area) and has lived on or near the water her whole life. I love the water, and everything associated with it. I am very interested in biodiversity and environmental issues, and work full time educating on these topics. After running a wholesale greenhouse operation for many years, she applies these skills of natural pest control, biological approaches to farming and growing, to clients around the country, She sells beneficial insects and compost tea brewing equipment and related items. The gardens are her sanctuary, and she works from home so is available at times for additional requests or access to information about hikes and things in the area.
