Life planning is sort of like planning a meal. You have an idea about what you’d like to see on your plate, but then you get to the market and the choices don’t look so good. So, you have to do an about face, a little rearranging, perhaps a bit of compromising, and select what will serve you in that moment. I left a great position as a culinary educator at a local food access organization, because I could no longer ignore the Call that I was getting to pursue doula work, which you can read about here. You’ll see that the names of both business are similar. In the doula world, I rock women in labor and newborn babies; in the culinary/gardening world, I “rock” ingredients and yards with my own special flavor of doing things. Look for recipes, pictures, comments and links here in the future. I’m gonna cheat and publish stuff here that first appeared as blog posts on the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture website. Those are pretty great posts, if I do say so myself. See ya.
