Celebrating the Humble Harvests of High Desert Homesteading


My name is Erin and I am a garden teacher, consultant, organizer, artist, wife, and creative spirit, not to mention famed for run on sentences.  I have lived in the high desert of New Mexico for 10 years. Here I have gotten dirty in many a garden, shared my delight in nature with many a children and continually grow from and learn from this strangely sparse yet abundant land.  

I live on 1/4 of an acre with my hero of a husband where we grow everything we can possibly squeeze onto this fertile little plot.  We share it with the starlings, skunks, a few wild cats, all who make our chickens an ever changing flock.  

I also have my own jewelry business called Desert Diosa (goddess of the desert) that I run from my home and sell at local markets and on the famous Etsy Website.  Visit to learn more and support our little cottage and it’s industries.
