Hey there! My name is Shelby DeVore. I'm the founder of Farminence and I'm here to help you with your gardening goals. I grew up on a small hobby farm in rural west Tennessee. I've been growing plants for nearly 20 years. I'm extremely passionate about all things related to agriculture; in fact, that's what lead me to getting a Master's degree in Agriculture. I taught high school agriculture for five years before I started Farminence. I have experience growing plants in all conditions, from traditional gardening to greenhouse growing and even growing in hydroponic and aquaponic systems. If you have questions or concerns about gardening, I've probably been there and done it before!
