What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker, Fill in the Blank
Fill in the blank:
food activist, food writer/researcher
A bit about me:
I'm a free-lance writer and researcher from Portland, Ore. When I'm not growing my own food, volunteering as a mentor for a low-income gardener, attending Food Policy Council meetings, helping plan and organize events for Portland Tuv Ha'Aretz, hosting a radio show (The Yiddish Hour, on KBOO 90.7 fm), blogging for The Jew and the Carrot or my own personal blog, cooking, eating, reading, biking or sleeping, I am probably working as the program annotator (aka professional music nerd) for the Oregon Symphony. Or not.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Kolokithopita, which is basically spanikopita using zucchini instead of spinach.
Currently reading:
Angels and Ages: a short book about Darwin, Lincoln and modern life, by Adam Gopnik
Currently listening to:
I listen to so much music for work that when I have the opportunity to listen to anything else, it's usually a podcast of some kind. Some favorites: Savage Lovecast, Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me!, Radio Lab, The Moth, This American Life. Yes, I'm a public radio geek. Sue me.
My latest DIY project:
Helping to organize and run the Portland chapter of Tuv Ha'Aretz. What's that, you ask? Check it out: www.portlandtuv.org.

Hi Liz,
Yes, the tagging thing is a drag...Looks like you are doing it the way I would suggest: two or more words together (ie: WhiteHouseGarden) will be searchable as White House Garden if someone were to put that in the search field.
Some sites allow for commas as separators, for this platform it's spaces.
Thanks for asking!
