Hi Everyone! Lots of new faces around here so we thought we’d say hello and introduce ourselves. We are Christina & Jochen and proudly hail from Longmont, CO. We have three daughters, 2 dogs and soon we will have pet quail. Jochen 👨🏼🌾🇩🇪works during the day in Tech and I Christina 👩🏻🌾 🇺🇸manage the day to day running of our Garden Consultancy - Modern Farmsteads (link in bio). We love to help people grow the garden they always dreamed of and for those new to gardening we like to help them dream up an edible landscape that will feed and sustain them for years to come, while at the same time adding beauty to their surroundings whether it’s one raised bed or many...When we aren’t doing that we like to potter in our own gardens, fly-fish, and I Christina, like to work on my art practice which is a kind of participatory art - what some call relational art or community art. As part of that, this year we launched the #longmontbreadproject where we bake loaves of bread for small businesses, meet up, connect, build deeper community all around a simple loaf of bread. We are loving every minute of that. (You’ll see the project roll in our stories and in our highlights a couple of times a week.) We thoroughly enjoy getting to know people in real life and if you’d ever like to catch coffee with us or have some bread please message us and let us know. Happy Saturday. As you read this, I will be attempting downhill skiing for the very first time - say a prayer or wish me luck! Jochen is a big skier and well... what we do for love. ✨QOTD: What are you doing for fun this weekend?
