Sharon Rose - Down to Earth: Programs for Living the Good Life

When people come to my cottage in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, they often call it an idyllic "dream cottage." Visitors step back in time, to a kitchen that would have made my Grandma B proud. Today, people might call my life "sustainable," but it has been my way of living since my youth, long before the word became vogue.

Our 50' x 150' garden hosts a wide variety of vegetables, fruit, and herbs that my husband and I freeze, dry, and can. I make bread, sauerkraut and maple syrup; we have chickens for eggs and meat. We harvest venison, and fresh fish from the "Cattail."

My array of flowerbeds, with hundreds of varieties of perennials and annuals, literally stops traffic on our rural road. And I've become known as The Flower Lady. 

Sharon Rose.
