About Alison Cooksey

My name is Alison and I am a zone 9B gardener in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have been gardening since 2019 and started small and expanded year after year. I’m a big fan of learning by trial and error. I try to be as sustainable in the garden as I can be. I have gotten into composting/vermicomposting which I feel really helps me lower my carbon footprint! If I’m not out in the garden, I am usually found watching TV with my cat or experimenting in the kitchen!
