"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, first you must create the universe." - Carl Sagan
I love this quote. It provides a gentle kick in the rear, a thump on the noggin, a little puttin' us in our place when we get big headed about the things we make and do. Still, it's hard not to feel like you're holding a bit of the world in your hands when you give birth to a website. Link this, highlight that, blog this, crop that, push, push, push.
The purpose of this new website is not to replace our market website where we buy and sell good local food. Rather, it is to celebrate all the fun stuff we end up doing with that good local food. For me, the reward is in watching the food bring us together. Who would have thought that a pound of sweet potatoes could spark so many conversations? Who would believe that a whole dinner party could be planned around the washing & chopping of kale? Oh, but I've seen it done!
Let this website & this blog be but another simple ingredient in the big pot of community soup we've got stewing on the hot stove of Augusta.
What are YOU gonna add to the mix?
