Dinner at a farm

Squash Pie!
Things sure have been crazy this last month. My littlest turned one, so hard to believe that it has been a year. And man is he a big boy, walking and running all over the place. I am looking forward to summer days with the kids running around outside. The garden planning is in full swing, I am day dreaming of fresh veggies.

School is in full swing for Chuck, he is also thinking ahead trying to find an internship. Hopefully something in the ecology field, that also pays. While looking for something for him I stumbled across a job for me. Now I know I am totally busy but it just sounded so perfect that I applied. And guess what- I got it!

Chuck and I have both felt a loss of community since loosing our farm. It was so difficult to deal with our own loss that it became difficult to hear about others farming the way that we were. So we isolated ourselves. Chuck and I spoke often of how we missed and longed to be back in the swing of sustainable farming. And then I saw this ad for a place called Dinner On The Farm she was looking for someone to help spread the word about her farming events. Long story short I am now the social media, public relations coordinator! I know fancy, schmancy!! I really thought this would be a great opportunity for me to talk about what I love, but also connect with others again.

The gist of Dinner On The Farm is that we work with local farmers, chefs, musicians, winery's, and breweries to put on a grand celebration. This year there are plans of 7 farms hosting an event. Monica, the founder, is really into all things local she even works with local companies who make biodegradable dinnerware for the dinners.

Part of my job will be blogging over on the Dinner On The Farm website. My first blog post is up check it out, let me know what you think. And if you think you might be interested in attending one of those farm celebrations stay tuned because next month is the reveal!
