Candace Godwin | The Coeur d'Alene Coop“I’ve always been a farm girl at heart. I love digging in the dirt, it soothes my soul.”

I grew up in a row home in Baltimore city, but I counted myself lucky since our house was at the beginning of the row.  This meant we had a front yard, a side yard and a back yard — were land rich compared to our neighbors.  My Mom was the gardener and we always had a garden full of  big, juicy Maryland tomatoes (the best ever!), beans and strawberries.  I can attribute my love of gardening and grubbing around in the dirt to her.

I hope you will follow along as I share my experiences and tips on how to raise backyard chickens and growing a successful garden.

Urban Farm Girl Candac Godwin | The Coeur d'Alene Coop“I believe marketing is much like growing a garden — you have to start with a plan; deciding what to sow, when and where.  It takes some grubbing in the dirt and a lot of cultivating relationships.  It’s attending to individual needs of prospects, overcoming the setbacks (slugs of all sorts) and reaping the mutual benefits with satisfied customers.”
