Debbie Ortman

I’m an herbalist, and have been an organic gardener for almost 40 years and have a 3,500 sq ft garden in Hermantown. Prior to retiring I was a private consultant and freelance writer and Coordinator of WLSSD’s food composting program for over 12 years.

I have taught classes at the Whole Foods Coop on Basics of Organic Gardening and Natural Pest Control, and also through the Duluth Community Garden Program.
