Michelle Koch

Michelle Koch writes “The wonderful thing in creating the stories and making photographs of this place and the people who live here is how generous folks are.  I walk alongside them sharing their lives for a bit, and then get to bring their ideas, challenges and successes to anyone opening the magazine. It’s exhilarating.” Eight years on board with Edible Cape Cod, she is a special needs educator by day who grow flowers and bakes for farmer’s markets in Truro and Orleans. Koch loves life on the lower Cape and exploring over the bridge with her two daughters and Woof, and blogs at seaturtlefarm.com.

Freelance writer Michelle Koch lives with her daughters Chloe and Camille and dog Woof in Orleans. She works in the Cape’s school system and often sees the need for food assistance that F4K is helping to meet. Like so many global and local issues, the unique contributions we each make, no matter what the scale, mean a lot.

Writer Michelle Koch loved learning in Melissa Sweet’s new biography Some Writer, that author E.B. White left a Manhattan job illustrating for The New Yorker to move with his wife and infant son to coastal Maine. Yes, White had an actual farm and a real pig that would inspire him to create Wilbur of his book, Charlotte’s Web.

Writer Michelle Koch spent early winter mornings on the gym’s elliptical, listening to YouTube videos on growing ranunculus, a flower she loves. (Hint: Aerate corms using an aquarium air pump.) Bunnies, kindly keep your distance.

Writer Michelle Koch found herself at a farmers’ market sandwiched between Drew Locke, selling his Hillside Poultry Farm pasture-raised chickens, and Katie and Todd of Fluffy Butt Farm, offering different varieties of eggs. She couldn’t have been in better company, and now knows about pullets and bloom.
