Jane Arie Baldwin
Jane grew up in the Texas dirt. As a toddler she loved to roll around in it relishing its taste and texture while her mother weeded the garden. As a young girl she enjoyed her neighbor’s vast strawberry and tomato patch. Dirt continued to be her passion into adulthood as a Meso-American archaeologist, digging for clues to ancient Maya life in Belize. The focus from dirt to food shifted when Jane learned about Ayurveda, an ancient system of traditional medicine originating in India. In Ayurveda all health originates in the digestive system meaning the body can only be as healthy as the gut. This awareness led Jane to understand the importance of eating fresh locally grown food. When she’s not writing about health and healing from her Fort Worth home, she’s outside in the dirt eating the bounty straight from the garden.
