Descended from pioneers and living her life on Wyoming ranches, Norma Jean Grant is a modern day cowgirl who thrives on self sufficiency. Grant grew up on a sheep and cattle ranch on Casper Mountain. After studying nursing at the University of Wyoming, she returned to a life of ranching at Turtle Rock Ranch on Boxelder Mountain. Grant and her family have lived on the mountain above Glenrock for over 40 years learning self sufficiency the hard way. Her “from scratch” recipes, sewing, crafting and mending skills as well as her ability to reuse and recycle the objects that have come into her life make her quite the local expert in sustainability. It’s a life dominated by mucking, mending and making do and its valuable knowledge Grant is willing to share. Come listen to Grant’s stories, tips and self sufficiency know-how at the Glenrock Branch Library on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 6 p.m.
