Heather Taylor has been growing organic food in the Valley for the last 18 years.  She got her start working in the soil of Illinois for her family’s landscaping business.  In 1993 Heather moved to Arizona, and immediately began composting and growing food.  Earning her bachelor’s degree in Botany, with an emphasis in Urban Horticulture at ASU in 1998, she’s since worked at several small organic farms including The Farm at South Mountain, Victory Farms and McClendon Select, in addition to her own edible landscaped backyard complete with chickens.  Heather is the owner of Turned Earth, a small business that serves restaurants and homeowners in growing and maintaining organic herb and kitchen gardens, with clients that include Pizzeria Bianco, Nobuo at Teeter House, the House at Secret Garden and several residential clients.
