Well hey there I’m Natalie and I’m a wife, a mother, believer, baker and... well... I teach people how to grow lush green gardens anywhere by harnessing the power of worms!

My husband, Tommy, daughter Ruby, and I along with our two cats, Bear & Oliver, and red wiggler worm babies love in the suburbs of San Diego. Though we dream of so much more, we believe the best way to partner with our big farm dream is to take action here and now, and bloom where we are planted.

It really all started at our first place, the 750 sqft apartment smack dab in the center of town. After too many nights spent crying under the covers watching farm videos longing for a farm of my own, I decided it was time to make the most of it. So I started worm farming in the corner of my kitchen and growing food on our apartment patio. And I’m so glad I did. Because I failed. Hard.

I ended up killing our first garden and first batch of worms. Uncomposted wood chips and a sopping wet worm bin and about $200 of soil down the drain, I was devastated. But I knew I couldn’t give up. So when we moved to San Diego, I started all over.

I built raised garden beds. Expanded the worm farm. And even built a mobile greenhouse on wheels using scrap wood God left me on the side of the road! We were given more space to steward and I wanted to steward it well.

Now we’ve been here three years and we are maxing out our space - we grow food in our yard and raise worms for compost. We have a beautiful lemon tree, pollinator patch, and of course, we start as many seeds as we can here in the greenhouse.

I’ve been documenting our journey for sometime now on YouTube and it’s finally time for us to level up our game which is why I’m so glad you’re here!

Welcome to our site where you can find resources on worm farming, products to help you get started, and merch that celebrates this lifestyle we call lovingly call homesteading.

Homesteading is a journey, a choice, a lifestyle - not a destination. And we believe baby steps are still steps in the right direction! So whether you’re just getting started, or have been a homesteader for some time, you are welcome here friend.

Join me for daily content on IG and tiktok where we can hangout on the homestead together. We also post weekly videos to YouTube and we love to do watch parties there!

But if you want the real VIP treatment, be sure you’re a part of our good life family newsletter where we share personal updates as well as first access to all the good things we have brewing here!

Welcome. Join me in blooming where we are planted and remember, hey, it’s a good life.

So glad you’re here,

Natalie
