Each time a new issue arrives in our mailbox (yes, a real paper copy magazine to read with cup of tea in hand) my 8 year old daughter and I wrestle to see who gets to flip through it first. She looks for the paper dolls, colouring pages, farm animal photography. I admire the artwork, food photography, latest recipes and stories. My husband admits he eventually makes his way through all the articles and stories too (even if it does give him pangs for a larger farm, some day). But the magazine makes us feel connected to a larger community worldwide of those trying to live honest, simple, handmade, heart-filled lives. We feel renewed in our efforts here on our little urban homestead to keep mending, baking, fermenting, unschooling, gardening, wild-harvesting, healing, and so forth - adding new insights and inspiration to what we already do in our day to day life.
In the current issue, check out our article - Homegrown Sprouts! You'll learn how to grow sprouts at home, and get recipes for super sprout salad, and morning greens smoothie, plus learn a little more about how and why we love to sprout.
