Archie and Hilloah in front of cabin

Archie and Hilloah enjoying a glass of wine in front of their home.


My name is Hilloah Tanner, and I’m an Enrollment Specialist at Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. I have one of the most exciting jobs of all: I talk with people all over the world, learn their stories, and help them to come to our school in Fort Bragg as students or Kitchen Angels.

One of my favorite activities outside of school is organic gardening. My husband Archie and I have many fenced gardens. I emphasize many because on our almost six acres of land there are a lot of deer who delight in “nibbling” on our fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other “goodies”  meant  just for them (as they see it).

We have a 1,000 sq. ft. garden for corn, squash, cucumbers, and dahlias; another for our olleberries, raspberries, and loganberries; one for our lettuce, spinach, celery, and basil; one is a holding garden full of potted trees and bushes; and the last is in front of our cabin around a pond. It is full of roses, bush peas, radishes, foxgloves, and much more. The Mendocino Coast is great place to grow a garden, and we are inspired because as members of  the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens we not only enjoy the gardens year round, we are also invited to their great plant sales. We’re also lucky  to have a great “grass roots” organization here, Noyo Food Forest. They teach members of our community, including  the children in our local schools, how to grow and enjoy organic gardens. I love learning new ways to use the produce of my gardens at Living Light, and sharing recipes with like minded people. We all share fruits,  vegetables, and plants  from our gardens. This is  my first post, and I’ll be writing a new post every Tuesday.

Talk with you next week!
