About Devon Young
I am an herbalist, forager, homesteader, and a from scratch cooker seeking to lead a more holistic sustainable lifestyle. I am also a mother to a large family and a wife to an amazing man living in the beautiful and bountiful Willamette Valley in western Oregon.
When not consulting with clients, creating herbal medicines and new recipes, and writing books or for my blog NittyGrittyLife.com, I spend my time tending to and renovating our 100 year old farmhouse and wistfully dreaming of someday nearing completion -- however unlikely that might be on a working homestead!
