Tammy Jex Mayrend has been blogging since 2008 for clients and started several of her own blogs in 2009 including the Michigan Backyard Gardener and the Ann Arbor Mom blog. She can also be found throughout the web as a contributor on many sites since her employer, PWB Marketing Communications keeps her busy as the director of search and social media.
Growing up, Tammy has many memories of spending time with grandparents in the garden, learning how to plant, grow and preserve food. Camping and spending time outdoors has always been a big part of her life. Now as a parent herself, she has filled her children’s lives with spending time walking in the woods, fishing, gardening and preserving all of summer’s natural bounty. She isn’t happy unless she can get her hands dirty!
Some of the favorite things the family does together is to do nature crafts, cook, make real maple syrup and hunt for the elusive morel mushroom!
