Alicia grew up in Maine with blueberry fields as her backyard, a large garden tended by her grandfather, chickens scratching in the yard and long summer days playing outside. This early experience influenced her love of gardening and eating whole foods. Her time as Nutrition and Fitness chair at her kid’s elementary school exposed her to the fun of working with kids in the kitchen. That experience fueled her desire to create a place for kids to experience the joy of growing food and cooking creatively as well as just relaxing in the quiet of a woodland garden. She also teaches yoga for kids and adults at Harbor Athletic Club and has taught wellness classes at businesses for 16 years. Alicia is the proud parent of sometimes adventurous eaters Abby, Chloe & Jackson and wife of her best friend, Mark.
