    Being home in Vermont and on my family's farm has allowed me to be more present with my food choices and preparing meals for the day and week. We'll be preserving a lot this week. Today: squash. Tomorrow: apple sauce and pickled beets!

    Day One of the eco challenge and also day one of driving from Colorado to Vermont. While I am feeling some guilt for the amount of gas I am using for this trip, my preparations have helped me feel good about this challenge. I bought all bulk items for snacks--fruits, vegetables, I made popcorn, dried fruit-- and enough for our three day drive so I don't need to buy single-use plastics or bags! Excited to hear other updates!

    While transitioning from a summer in the mountains to a fall in the city, I am looking forward to finding ways to maintain a sustainable lifestyle, for myself, my community, and the earth. Excited to begin the challenge in a few short weeks!
