It Starts with Passion…

Wicked Handy is all about passion, and our passions come in the form of hard work and great food.  We value creating and building with our own hands whenever possible.  We want to share our passion with anyone who shares a similar interest with us.  Those interests include gardening, cooking (often with the foods we grow in our garden), and wood-working/do-it-yourself projects.

Inside this site, you’ll find tips and tricks, blueprints and plans, recipes, and so much more.  We hope you enjoy learning along with us as much as we do. Thank you for visiting!
