Brigid Simone Rhoades is a mother, gardener, and food lover from the Pacific Northwest. She first came to New Mexico in 2013 to take a Permaculture design course and instantly fell in love with the high-desert landscape. She moved to Santa Fe in 2015 where she found a place to nurture her fascination, passion and love of growing sustainable food. She has been farming here for the last two and a half years. Whether it’s her daughter or her plants, Brigid loves watching things grow and is inspired by the inherent struggle and beauty within that process.
