Health knowledge made personal

Gloria Bonde

Hot Springs, South Dakota
For over 20 years I have worked from home. This allows me to have an organic garden. I love to make healthy food grown in my garden.  I also volunteer as a member of the local county Master Gardeners group. I work to be healthy and thankfully I am.
