Episode 55: Jackie Beyer | Host of the Organic Gardener Podcast, Educator, and Montana Watercolor Artist | awesomemontana.com
Jackie grew up in NY on Long Island, about 20 miles outside of NYC. After reading a book about Montana in 4th grade, called Sasha, My Friend by Barbara Corcoran she said I’m gonna move to Montana. Subscribing to Montana Magazine all through H.S. she finally moved to Missoula to go to the University of Montana. As a junior her friends said “you should go plant trees” and that’s where she met her husband Mike on a mountainside and they’ve been happily married almost 23 years. That’s basically where she learned how to garden. Both are passionate environmentalists. He does most of the work.
