Stacy is also co-owner of Little Barn Akers, a small high tunnel farming operation near Van Buren, Indiana.
Stacy enjoys giving presentations and meeting fellow garden enthusiasts. One of her favorite memories is presenting at a conference that was held on an Alaskan cruise ship. She did her best to keep the attention of her audience, but finally heeded to the icebergs as the ship cruised through Glacier Bay.
