There’s nothing like a good kick in the pants to send us into the weekend inspired. This morning, we chatted with Desiree, a nature lover and 100 percent HOMEGROWN gal from Branson, Missouri. Desiree’s whole-hearted commitment to taking care of the world—and her own body, mind, and spirit—was a good reminder of just how interconnected our health is with that of our environment. For more from Desiree, check out her blog and her Etsy shop. While you’re doing that, we’ll put a kettle on for tea—and maybe add a drop of that shiitake tincture. To your health, Desiree, and to yours, HOMEGROWN!
One important note: The conversation begins with the comment that shows up last, now on page two, so you’ll need to read from the end up. Hey, it’s a little like farming: What’s down low in the soil is crucial to all of the good stuff that comes later. And thanks so much for the chat, Desiree. Really good to know you.
What is Meet Your Neighbors? Most of us spend a fair amount of time tending our online gardens, but it’s easy to forget there’s a real person behind every quiche recipe, chicken inquiry, and hoophouse design here on HOMEGROWN. Well, nuts to that! MYN gives us a chance to meet over the back fence and shake hands. (Or maybe hug? We’re huggers. But no pressure.)
