What kind of HOMEGROWN are you?
Earth Mama, Dirt Under My Fingernails City Slicker
A bit about me:
Recovering workaholic, rediscovering simplicity. I do it myself, or figure it out, or think about things differently now. Most of the time. Not all of the time.

I'm a consultant on communications, graphic design and branding for non-profits and government agencies and I love what I do and who I do it for. My clients are social change agents.

I garden like a fiend and write about it for a regional queer newspaper.

I sew when I can, and I barter for goods as it happens. I can what we grow and more from local farmers. And I cook from scratch as much as possible.

It's a whole new world.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Using up all of the great goods canned last season, made a great chili with the canned chili sauce.
Currently reading:
Utne Reader
Currently listening to:
Avett Brothers
My latest DIY project:
Our garden: it's in constant need of attention. And work!

I really should count the amount of steps from kitchen to vegetable bed. I don't think I'd need to carbon offset those steps, would I? Oh sweet sarcasm. Let's do it visually.
