This website is about how a small greenhouse, green life, people, animals, nature, life, death are in relation to me and you … We all are connected to the same earth. Perennials, herbs, vegetables, and flowers are my joy and stress-relief. Still a work in progress, Deanna Greens and Garden Art aims to repurpose materials, grow edible and adorable plants using organic and sustainable methods, and take advantage of those teachable moments with the community around us. Our structure is solely solar, no electric and used 9 months out of the year. In 2019, we are tending to organic garden greens, herbs, and beets. Plans are still to build another bed to expand our edible greens in the screenhouse side of our greenhouse. We have 2 donated skylights to repurpose into root cellars, maybe expand our growing season in the greenhouse side during the winter months. Our greenhouse/screenhouse is housed on Boone Hollow Farm near Defiance in beautiful Boone country and the beginnings of Missouri’s wine country.
In July 2017 a new page had been added to this site, a blog called Woman Warrior. This is birthed from the need for women, myself included to continue in our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual fights with faith knowing victory is ours. In August 2018 another new page was created, Deanna’s Cottage. Writings and musings of our newly purchased 4-room house in historic St. Charles, Missouri will be found here. Built in 1941 during the WWII, this charming home has all the original woodwork, trim, doors, and flooring. We have 2 rooms to still reveal its original wood floors. In December 2018 we opened our cottage to travelers for a select 7 weekends out of the year using the Airbnb reservation venue. If you are traveling to St. Charles, Missouri, check us out on https://www.airbnb.com/ under the name “Deanna’s Cottage”. More to come …
