No matter how sad we humans may become, the world keeps spinning and the seasons march on. After a mild winter, spring crept in on tiny cat paws before any of us could believe it. Here at SSF, all the trees are already bursting into bud, throwing caution to the wind and declaring it officially the growing season.
I am a 50-year old community engagement manager, wife, mom and sort of farmer with a passion for sharing life and love through vibrant and delicious food. I work to slowly (very slowly) build a place where people come to know their food and take pleasure in its journey. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful island community outside Seattle, surrounded by nature and exceptional people, especially my loving and supportive Aussie husband, our amazing son, and a small band of fiercely dedicated friends. This site is dedicated to sharing what I learn as I stumble through everyday lessons on farming, animals, growing healthy food, parenting, and what the future holds.
