During her 20’s, Tara unexpectedly began to suffer from a wide range of illnesses and was even diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease. She was wheelchair bound for 5 years and grew frustrated with not knowing what was wrong with her. After several years, Tara realized the root cause of her ailments were tied to food and poisons. She learned the value of simplifying and turned to farming her own food. Today, she is a “soil farmer” and helps others understand the importance of gardening and actively participating when it comes to choosing what food we eat!
