Meet Liz McLellan - Hyperlocavore

Liz McLellan is on a mission to turn front and back yards everywhere into gardens of abundance. She’s the founder of, a new Web site dedicated to hooking people up to yard-share in urban and suburban areas.

A hyperlocavore is a person who tries to eat as much food as locally as possible and, as Liz says, “growing your own is as local as it gets!”

Here in The Gimpy Gardens, we - Cait & Marty - share a large backyard packed with metal garbage cans and discarded livestock water and feed troughs used as raised beds. Come summer, it is a veritable suburban Garden of Eden.

We’ve signed on as members at Hyperlocavore and encourage you to do the same. It’s a great way to match people of different physical abilities to get more from the land and life.

You can follow Liz here, where she alerts us to the latest videos and news on yard-sharing.

    Thank you so much for blogging the site! It’s a thrill as you are my first! And you always remember your first!

    Your bio blurb is hilarious!

    I’m poking around for garden pictures…

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Gardening is a combat sport here this year. Monsoons followed by a week of intense heat in early June accelerated everything, including the insects which devoured the squash and cukes. But banner year for sun flowers and tomatoes, if you grew them from reliable seed. It’s because of reliable seed that I avoided having my tomatoes wiped out with late blight. How are things in that beautiful part of Oregon?
