Hi, Andrew. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us! You may have already seen it, but I made your blog post today’s Daily Bite, up at the top of the homepage. Thanks for sharing the word on Windward. Sounds like you guys are up to all kinds of good stuff. Since everything here on the site comes from our members, I hope you’ll consider posting stories and photos of some of your projects (opening up that acre and building the biomass, the integrated forest pasture, or pretty much anything else) in our member blog, The Stew. Reposting from the Windward blog or newsletter is A-OK with us; we love to spread the love!

Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage. And if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
