"I swear it was like a gateway to another world..."
“There’s a pond that I used to go to as a kid. First you had to go into the woods, and you walk and you walk and you walk, and suddenly it opens up into a meadow and pond. I swear it was like a gateway to another world. The sun shone just a little bit different. You hear legends of the fairy….it was almost like it was a gateway to that. There are these places in Wisconsin...if you go walking far enough off the beaten path, you can still find them."

We met Debbie at the Wausau Farmer's Market, selling herbs and vegetables from her farm, Ethereal Gardens. She let us huddle under her tent during a quick summer rain, and charmed us with talk about Northern Lights and growing herbs.
