Linda Watson started the Cook for Good project after becoming obsessed with the national Food Stamp Challenge: living on a dollar a meal per person for a week. Her three-week experiment became a lifestyle, the website CookforGood.com, the book Wildly Affordable Organic, and now the Wildly Good Cook videos and teachers' training program.
Linda and her husband Bruce live in Raleigh, North Carolina. They're both avid hikers, so Linda is especially glad that WAO was named a Sierra Club Green Home Editors' Choice for 2012.
At home, she's slowly converting their yard to an edible forest garden, with hazelnuts, kiwis, and more, as well as annual vegetables and plenty of oddly gorgeous plants.
She's had an odd but thrilling career so far, including developing a top-secret expert system for the Institute for Defense Analyses, working with Tom Clancy and Douglas Adams on computer games, riding the dot-com wave with Egarden.com, and being the director of her county political party and the Raleigh Independent Business Alliance.
