Lawrence and Suzanna Alexander live on Alexzanna Farms, a fifty acre piece of nature located in Wildwood, Georgia. Lawrence, an archaeologist, began gardening at age seven with his grandfather in California. Suzanna, a retired physical therapist, grew up as a true southerner running through her father’s corn patch.
In 1990 they began their two acre garden, which is cared for in harmony with the Steiner-Findhorn philosophies and without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Eggs from their free-range, pastured poultry, fish from their spring-fed lake, fruit from their heirloom orchard, as well as muscadines, pawpaws, figs, various berries and shiitake mushrooms fill their plates.
In the family gardening tradition, they share their garden’s excesses at the Main Street Farmers Market. The spring’s strawberries, asparagus, lettuces, herbs and flowers will be followed by summer's vegetables, potatoes, and corn.
They feel that sharing the healthy, fresh energy of the earth’s abundance in a joyful market setting is both a pleasure and a privilege.
