    Cultivating Light - Self Care for the Winter Solstice

    (From the Journal archives:) These darker days afford us the opportunity to slow our pace and shift our focus inward. When we embrace the cyclical change in season – the dark, the cozy, the heavier days – we can learn to find and connect more with our own light. The darkness can be a great teacher, helping to uncover strengths and parts of ourselves...
  • Canning the Harvest: Preserving food, memories, and love in a jar.

    With the warm smell of alder smoke in the air and the steady gurgle of the pressure canner bubbling away on the stovetop, I spent the last weekend salting, smoking, and canning this summer’s catch of king, coho, and sockeye salmon.

    New Beginnings: Introducing Groundswell

    Gathered and Grown began for me as a passion, a side project, a dream.
