Growing Our Family

Leave a comment

Garden blogging has taken a backseat lately, to a more important endeavor: growing our family through adoption. While we go through this long, complicated process, I have been keeping visions of more happy little hands working in the gardens with me to keep me going.  I can’t wait to be a family of four, (five including Mema!) to grow together in love and pick tomatoes together.

Our story and us asking for help from our family and friends is here: It Takes a Village- Help us Adopt!

Mahalo for reading, and I will be back soon with more garden posting. Aloha. Image

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.
