Linda Fields, Sole Proprietor
My mission is to promote the use of practical, chemical free means to manage ponds and lakes of all sizes, through the dissemination of information and the sale of environmentally friendly products. I treat all my customers the way I want to be treated when I shop.
Linda Fields, Owner / Agronomist
• My ‘Au Naturale’ approach to pond management is a KISS approach.
• Keep it simple and use the fewest practices possible to achieve your goals for your pond.
• Healthy water makes a clean, healthy pond.
• Rather than treating the symptoms of poor water with ever increasing does of chemicals, find the source of the problems that prevent you from enjoying the pond as you intend and correct just these.
• Start with the least expensive fixes first and add only as many ’fixes’ until the desired level of quality is reached.
ABOUT LINDA FIELDS
Linda Fields grew up rural Carroll County Maryland as the mad scientist child with a room full microscopes and jars of goppy pond water.
Linda is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland School of Agriculture with 30 plus years experience in the field of water quality and environment management. She worked for Howard County Government in Maryland for 27 years, beginning in 1971, and worked in Planning and Public Works in the following fields: In the Planning Department, she assisted in planning for the New City of Columbia including near by Centennial Lake, 1971—1973. In the Department of Public Works, 1976 to 2000, she worked on the Columbia Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, Patuxent and Patapsco Rivers. She also developed the first recycling program for the county including award winning 'Sort with Mort’, curb side recycling, recycling materials processing and composting facilities. She served as water quality expert for litigation on County waste water discharges and provided consultation on landfill, groundwater supply, and ground water remediation projects.
In 2000 Linda retired to her little farm tucked away in nearby Carroll County to spend more time with her family and to pursue her passion: Still Pond Farm.
Linda shares farm life with her husband, daughter, two horses, two dogs, one cat, dozens of koi, and a raft of deer and assorted wildlife.
A jack of all trades, Linda’s enjoys kayaking, gardening, remodeling her old farm house, horses, photography, and of course, her koi pond.
