Place of Residence: Surry County, North Carolina
Around About: Tasha comes to homesteading by way of eclectic professional and personal experiences, ranging from cutting precision electrical tape in a factory to opening restaurants and retail shops from Egypt to Washington, DC, and working as a Legal Administrator. Somewhere between longing for the simplicity of her grandmother's home, developing an environmental obsession as a scuba dive master and reef naturalist in Maui, spending all her eating and cooking hours immersed in French agricultural and culinary traditions, and meeting the man of her dreams (Matt Miles – big boy with the hat at right), Tasha found her true calling in homesteading.
Tasha spent several years “practicing” in a suburban home in Maryland before moving to a nearly 10-acre rural paradise in North Carolina where she currently raises pigs, goats, poultry, bees, worms, vegetables, herbs, trees, shrubs, and mushrooms. She also spends a lot of time doing projects and enjoying life with the incredible community of gardeners, homesteaders, cooks, and wine enthusiasts she's met in North Carolina. She is a master gardener volunteer with a focus on helping people grow their own food.
