Coming from a self-proclaimed introvert, there’s something to be said about the fellowship provided when surrounded by individuals of like mind. Discussing healthy choices in cooking, gardening, and medicine is invigorating for me, and learning how to reduce toxins in my home is a personal priority. I have found that it’s difficult to find a receptive audience outside of certain circles, because most people don’t want to hear when they’re making a mistake. It’s only when they are looking for the information that I am heard, and that’s ok. I totally get it- navigating our food system is incredibly overwhelming, and it’s hard to accept that our local grocery store is full of products that can hurt us. But it does, and until the awakening begins, I’ll keep writing, and sharing, and teaching. Small, but meaningful efforts that will create bigger movements, and hopefully foster the growth of our community.

Share with me- what are you doing to help build your community?
