barefoot farmer

On Saturday we got to go learn from the Barefoot Farmer, Jeff Poppen!
If you know me, you know I love all things gardening. 
Not only did Jeff feed my science brain by talking about chemistry & biology
 but he emphasized the importance of organic gardening,
 something that's been a conviction of mine for the past 6 years. 
I was reminded of the importance of calcium in my soil
& educated on how vital fungi & bacteria are in the life of a plant. 
The earth is amazing!!! 
Thank you Foxhollow Farm for hosting this baller 
event & Jeff you're simply incredible.

local

Louisville has always been my home & as I've grown so has this beautiful city. 
Growing up I often enjoyed the things Louisville had to offer, the community
 mainly, I love that no matter where you go everything still feels like home. 
In 2010 I began working for Edible Louisville Magazine & was inspired
 by our city's developing local food scene. 
Please & Thank You comes to mind whenever I'm craving a spanish latte 
& a cinnamon roll the size of my head. 
I know I can go there & feel at peace. It's not just the awesome sweets, incredible
Argo Sons Coffee, or variety of records that take me by surprise, but it's the warmth. 
Hospitality is an understatement for this quaint shop on 800 East Market,
 I am always amazed by the sweetness, not only in their chocolate chip cookies, but in their staff
These people are amazing! WOW. They make me feel like I'm apart of their family, 
not just a customer buying their product--but someone who is appreciated & known. 
So thank you and please keep it up. My weekly visits never feel enough, I always crave more.
