No Mill Valley school would be complete without a garden, and Saint Agatha Lin Academy certainly won't be beat! I was inspired when reading (and helping to edit) my friend Marion's wonderful and fun book about making home and garden improvements and staying financially healthy in the process. You can find "The Real Deal, Making Big Changes with Small Change" at: and on amazon at:

Just a start, but it feels like progress, reclaiming our postage-stamp sized yard from chaos due to neglect, Ike droppings, and a destructive gopher. So far, corn, flowers, tomatoes, and strawberries. Who-knows-what to come!

I am, Marion! I wake up at night thinking about what I'll do next, wondering when it will be light enough to get out. Yikes! :-)
