Peggy Nolan


Thanks for checking out my site!

I am a teacher, a gardener, a hiker and biker, a lover of healthy foods and a traveler, no special order and all meaningful! I am married to a wonderful man and have helped to raise 2 sons and a granddaughter, probably my most lively occupation.  My community in Atlantic Beach, Florida is important to me and I am happy to have been a teacher to many children over the past 30 years;  I continue that experience in my volunteer work at the Children’s Garden in Neptune Beach, combining my passion for growing gardens with children’s nature connection. I continue to learn, with the natural world as my best teacher, and my best stories happen outside, whether hiking, camping, sailing or gardening.  Life is good!
