#LocalBite Mini Challenge – Week Three

I have a confession to make: Despite my great intentions last week, I simply was not able to push a few seeds into the soil. Utter failure.

Local Bite Reflection

With our Local Bite Challenge behind us by over a month already, I've been putting off writing this post for a variety of reasons.

Local Perspective – Local Food Ethics

Welcome to our final installment of the Local Perspective series! This series has been such an inspiration to me, as I hope it's been for you! Our final piece is brought to us by Tatiana of Mama Philosopher, who I hope you are all familiar with through her Books Worth Reading post that started us off in April and her…
