About the Author

Kris Bordessa is a freelance writer, author, and eternal experimenter. Raised in a farming family in northern California, she’s—without a doubt—more comfortable in a vegetable garden than a shopping mall. Currently residing in Hawaii with her family, she’s embracing local crops like bananas and kalo (taro) while still stubbornly trying to grow tomatoes and zucchini, which simply don’t thrive in the island climate. Her award-winning book Attainable Sustainable: The Lost Art of Self-Reliant Living was published in 2020 by National Geographic Books.
