About the Funkyard

Hi it’s me, Anna Funk. And I quit my day job.

What’s better than a steady paycheck? Hopefully it’s freelance writing, editing, making videos, discovering whether I’m too old for TikTok, and putting together silly newsletter updates.

Oh, and gardening. Lots of gardening. I’m bad at making plants grow, so it’ll be an adventure. (Yes, I have a Ph.D. in plant biology. No, that doesn’t mean I’m good at growing plants. SIGH.)

Want to see if I can turn 0.25 acres into a native prairie + vegetable-growing paradise, and still pay my bills? Yeah, I think you do.
