Hi, Meaghan. 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. Holy cow, you’re like the human embodiment of HOMEGROWN! I’m guessing you have a million and one tips and ideas to share with the rest of the HOMEGROWN brood. Please (please!) don’t be shy about sharing stories, recipes, DIY projects, and more in our member blog, The Stew. Re-posting from your personal blog is A-OK with us; we like to spread the love! I would also love to tap your expertise for a HOMEGROWN 101; is there a topic you’d be especially willing to expound upon for the rest of your HOMEGROWN brethren/sistren? But back to the nuts and bolts: Here on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the very 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!
