Meet Viana & Erich

It’s all about creating for me…
whether it’s helping a flower or vegetable
grow big and strong…
or making something artistic that can be
appreciated for its beauty or comfort
when it’s finished…
or cooking or baking something delicious.

I am a curiousiholic.
When I’m not in the kitchen coming up
with some new takes on food, I’m wandering somewhere in nature
wondering why, what, and
is this edible?
I always wanted to be an explorer, finding
something out there that is not googleable.

~ Erich

Whether Viana is crocheting a beautiful scarf or Erich is building a bird box, we’re regularly working on fun crafts and DIY projects to keep your creativity alive.


As soon as humanly possible, Viana & Erich are working in the garden, to plant vegetables to use in the kitchen all year long, and finding other fun and creative ways to work and play outside!

Erich is seriously into birding, hiking, and just generally enjoys being in nature every single day. He loves sharing with others all about ways that we can get a little bigger dose of “vitamin N” and enjoy the world and animals around us.
