This is Rucha. Rucha is a friend, a mother, and the wife of Citizen Keith. She was born in Berkeley (but don’t call her a hippie) and spent her formative years in New Zealand before finally calling Sacramento home. Rucha is the Valentine’s Citizen and she shows a ton of love to her 3 boys and husband and any plant or garden that gets in her way. She loves shade plants like elephants ear, golden moneywort, and ferns. She also loves the mystery of bulbs when they appear in the spring. Rucha is also a fellow Thievery Corporation fan (1, and in comes the 2 to the 3 and 1…) and appreciates the Violent Femmes, Dylan, Ani DiFranco, Eddie Vedder, and lately, Rhianna. Rucha is 36.

Favorite Accomplishments: Naturally birthing all three of my children at home, 1 a water birth. Being with my mother in New Zealand when she passed away. All the gardens I’ve ever started.

Regrets: Wearing white pants today in the garden! Also, not attending correctly to some personal relationships. Mostly my regrets take the form of: wish I knew then vs. what I know now.

What are your passions/obsession? Plants! Great style and beauty in any form. Raising healthy children! Listening to excellent music. All the amazing people I’m blessed to have in my life!

What are your fondest memories of New Zealand?  The natural beauty that we lived in every day. For fun , as teenagers, we climbed hills and rafted creeks. I was lucky to have a group of girlfriends who were all artistic, funny, special people. I am so grateful to have grown up there!

What did you get for Valentines Day? A new crockpot.

What’s for dinner? A pork loin that we got from Mr. Piggy at the farmer’s market.

Sound Off! Let’s take all the empty plots of land in South Sac and turn them into gardens and farms to grow food for the people!

Thank You Rucha!
