two plant lovers
Jenny Hauf grew up in Milwaukee on Laura Ingalls Wilder, L.M. Montgomery, and the wild shades of green in her father's and grandparents' gardens. She was obsessed with life from the beginning, forever chasing grass stains and dreams of dirt and leaves.
Since 2006 Jenny has been devoting her life to plants. Her education in sustainable agriculture has taken her from the picket fences of Virginia to the sandhill crane's mating grounds in northern Wisconsin; from the sheep and goat pastures of Italy's Piemonte to the technicolor fields of County Cork; from a French herb farm with a view of Mont Blanc to an apple paradise in the back roads of central Maine.
Before starting Muddy River Herbals, Jenny created and curated the medicinal herb collection at Allandale Farm, introducing homegrown medicinal plants to the people of Boston. When she's not elbow-deep in herbs you can find her writing, landscaping, or doing something—anything—with wool. You can find her elsewhere on the web at Herbstalk, where she is a contributing writer, and at her archived blog, Spokes and Petals.
