Stephanie Blessing lives in Jefferson with her husband.  They have a vegetable and herb farm where they teach classes and sell plants.  Stephanie grew up in the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia, and has worked in the non-profit sector for 20 years for food and housing organizations. She loves teaching how to build and repair things. She holds occasional home repair classes at local libraries. Steph volunteers with the Ashtabula County Historical Society, and with various local food events around the county.  Her underground greenhouse is visible in the background of this pic!
