The Channel Garden at Clark Gardens

Mary Otto is an advocate for her business as well as the need for people to know some basics on canning and natural health care. Being Amish/Mennonite, growing up on a working farm, and learning how to grow, cook, bake, & preserve food comes naturally for her. Mary has also taken courses at Toastmasters to learn public speaking. She enjoys teaching groups and individuals to be more self sufficient.

As a working entrepreneur/mother she has learned some timesaving methods to get canning done quicker and most times also healthier. Mary believes that learning should be fun and easy to understand.

Mary lives on a hobby farm in Decatur, TX with her husband, Merle, and 4 healthy, creative, and lively boys ranging from 9 yrs. - 3 yrs. They have sheep, goats, chickens, a donkey and a few other critters.  She may be contacted at .
