Much of the inspiration behind Schulte’s writing and her love of gardening come from her family. Schulte is a mother of four boys, ranging in age from 20 to 8. Her oldest two boys are currently attending college. Her youngest son, whom is 8-years-old, was adopted from foster care and has Down Syndrome. It is a condition he shares with Schulte’s 9-year old biological child who also has Down Syndrome. In caring for the special needs of her youngest two children, Schulte developed a special interest in healthy foods. She sees what a difference a healthy diet makes in their daily lives. She admits to being a health food nut.
Inspired by a passion for whole organic foods, Schulte prefers growing most of her own food and making and selling natural herbal products on Etsy.com. Schulte is an avid nature lover and ardent environmentalist. In addition to growing food, she loves to forage for wild fruits, herbs, nuts and berries.
