Find Leigh on:
Leigh has three major passions: teaching, writing, and food. After living in Brooklyn for over three years, she relocated to upstate New York this past July in order to continue her work as a middle school teacher, adjunct professor, and writer. Years of urban homesteading, backyard gardening, and dreams of one day having a farm seem like they are about to pay off: in April of 2013 she is moving out to a farm in Fulton County, NY. Chickens, dairy goats, and rabbits are all on the immediate horizon, with Dexters, pigs, and honeybees to follow.
