Connecting You to a Place, It's Food and the People Who Harvest It.
After having lived in DC for 10 years, I found myself wondering why I was still there. While I loved the District, I was a conscious capitalist in the land of civil servants, an outdoors lover in an urban center. I was living a convenient life, when I yearned for a life that was richer.
So I pulled out a sheet of paper and defined the life I wanted: mountains & water, a grill and a garden, freedom from stuff, and rich in experience. I needed to move, and Seattle was at the top of my list. So I flew out for a test drive, in the hardest month to visit -- January -- and I fell in love with it. Not just with its beauty, but also its ethos: a forward-thinking, innovative, dedicated to mitigating climate change, and a collective social conscience. Nearly everyone I met had social impact as their business model or started a charity, or were an active volunteer. I came away believing that the best of our future can be found right here in Seattle -- I had to live here! So I sold my home back east and drove cross country to make Seattle my home. This website started out as a love letter to the Pacific Northwest, now I hope it to be a community hub for connecting people to this special place, it's food, and the people who feed us.
