Lett-uce Be Free

First off: Yes, this is a bad Corona-V pun and it was 50% unintentional and 50% I have no shame and lots of bad jokes bubbling up from too many days of being anti-social and having conversations with my dog… Secondly: I don’t know about you but last weeks heat has got me craving all…

Improving Food and Agriculture Sustainably

It is impossible to be interested in food without having an interest in agriculture, and for me, the passion is fuelled by an interest in both. To challenge one without knowledge of the other is often futile, and in today’s world the correct knowledge is hard to find. Often times agriculture is used as a…

Foraging for the Wild Things

In light of current events it’s looking more and more like my childhood dreams of survival and apocalyptic adventures could actually come true.

A Lesson on Rest and Acceptance

Are you sick or just tired? I woke up today after a terrible nights sleep from stiff “study” muscles (as I’ve begun to deem my shoulder and neck aches), overly hot body temps, an the loving discomforts of the gift of the month. I normally don’t have any issues with my period at all but…

There are few certainties in life like change, summed up from one of my former employers with, ‘the only things certain in life are change, death…
