Janet Gamble is co-owner of Turtle Creek Gardens with Greg and Linda Wolf. As a farmer and educator, she has more than 30 years' experience in organic and biodynamic agriculture.
Janet didn’t grow up on a farm, but as a kid, she spent a lot of time on her grandparents’ farm. From an early age, she found a calling and deep purpose in growing food and being a steward for the land. Throughout her journey from gardener to farmer and farm educator, she’s been motivated by the vision of people coming together to share food with a common mind.
No matter how many times she witnesses the transformation of seed to vegetable, the mystery and beauty of the process never grows old or ceases to amaze her. She loves seeing people benefit health-wise through the food grown at TCG and finds great joy in sharing farm experiences with her two very young grandchildren.
Janet has served on the board of directors for The National Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association and Angelic Organics Learning Center, and is a founding board member for the Midwest Organic Sustainable Education Services (MOSES). Janet has also provided educational and advisory support for numerous other non-profits, government agencies, and farmers over the years. In the early 2000s, she developed and led a nationally recognized farmer training program and continues to provide learning and mentoring to farm interns each year.
Ginger Goral designs and creates the TCG brochures and manages the database of CSA members. She also hosts our Oconomowoc pick-up site. Ginger has been a CSA member for over 21 years.
Christi is contributing editor of the Turtle Creek Gardens CSA newsletter, which is published weekly during the Summer CSA season and bi-weekly during the Fall CSA season.
A chance discovery of the Back to Eden Cookbook in her high school library sparked Christi’s lifelong interest in healthy eating and its connection to environmental stewardship. In those days she spent her study hall hours copying recipes by hand onto note cards. In her current role as CSA Newsletter Editor, she gets to put the same curiosity and passion to work researching recipes and information to help CSA members enjoy their produce throughout the growing season.
Christi also manages our general communications, including email messages, keeping the website up-to-date, and providing administrative assistance.
