Ellen Vande Visse - Fertilizer on March 10th

Author & Environmental Consultant – Ellen Vande Visse, MS

     Ellen Vande Visse, MS, somewhere in her shady past, served as Environmental Education Consultant in West Michigan. Since 1987 in Alaska, she’s operated Good Earth Gardens as a market garden, a CSA, a demo garden, and now a home garden.

     Ellen was the grower for the kitchens of the National Outdoor Leadership School, Alaska Branch. She created and supervised a community garden for Mat-Su College, University of Alaska.

     Ellen is especially fond of all things decaying, and is known in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley as The Compost Queen. She is known to mysteriously brew compost tea for farmers, stores, and markets. She provides consultations on eco-agriculture growing systems (when she’s not playing in her multiple bins of red wiggler worms).

Our Mission:  The Homer Garden Club was founded to educate and encourage gardeners and to provide positive experiences for gardeners at all levels of learning. Homer Garden Club is a non-profit organization. The club happily welcomes new members and visitors.
