When Wilkinson stated to talk with her family about gardening sustainably and even keeping chickens in her backyard she was surprised by the excitement that was stirred up. Both of her sets of grandparents had kept hens in the city and were eager to share advice and memories, “My little ninety six year old nana kept about thirty hens and would sell the eggs to make an income during lean times, which was pretty much all the time since she had nine kids to feed.” Wilkinson also learned that she is actually a sixth generation Oregan Trail pioneer which added another dimension to her quest for a more sustainable garden and lifestyle.
