An ex-teacher, eco-entrepreneur, new mama living on a hobby-farm-in-the-making writing the blog "Adventures in Eco-Living" and running


My real eco-adventures started in 2006, when I got married and my husband and I decided it was time for a new life journey. We left the big city and moved to rural Michigan to create a hobby farm and live the green life!

After finishing my Masters in teaching, I worked for a few years, then "retired" to work from home and try to earn a living from our land. We opened The Greater Green, an eco-friendly online retailer specializing in natural, organic, and non-toxic home products that we use and love.

We started this blog as a way to communicate our eco-ideas, laugh and learn along the way, and connect with other dreamers and adventurers out there!

We hope you will join us in our Adventures in Eco-Living!
