A place for those of us who are just dipping our toes into Homegrown living. Maybe we're looking to change how we buy our food, what we buy...Maybe we've started our first garden and have questions. If you're green, this is the place for you!

"Welcome to HOMEGROWN, Lori! Knitting a new hat is definitely DIY! I'm learning to knit now, and can't wait to be starting hats.

"Hi Lori - welcome to HOMEGROWN! Knitting certainly does count as DIY. I'm just learning and will need lots of practice before I can actually make something for my 5-month-old son. :) We put together a Knitting 101 here. Please recommend…"
I am a full time working mama to two wonderful kiddos! I am a wife to a wonderful husband as well!! I like to knit, cook, read, hike, yoga, ski and camp. I try to buy local and organic. I started my first vegi garden last spring so I am also an amatuer gardener. I almost forgot.... I am also learning to sew.
