Tammy Algood learns more about the varieties and growing methods as she walks the strawberry fields of Kelley’s Berry Farm in Castalian Springs. She also checks the progress in the large blueberry and blackberry patches.
Tammy Algood — Tammy has loved to garden and cook her whole life. She wanted to spend as much time as possible with her Grandmother who gardened and cooked, so she learned at her knee. Tammy is a marketing specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. She has written numerous cookbooks, including Farm Fresh Southern Cooking and The Southern Slow Cooker Bible. “Being a host on Volunteer Gardener allows me to meld both of my passions into one activity…cooking from my garden.”
