Welcome to your home for the tricks of the trade for living sustainably and queerly in the city. We are here to bring you our recipes and adventures in the kitchen, in the garden, and in the city at large so that you can live a healthier life and enjoy it more, too!

Please enjoy our regular blogging, our interactions with local leaders in sustainability and farming, and our approach to keeping the future of food bright for everyone in our community. We are excited to add audio and visual components to our little operation here in the near future. We are also open to suggestions, so if there’s something you want to see, please let us know!

Finally, as you are going out into the world, consider how you are sustainable. Consider how you could be a more “Sustainable You.” Rachel is  developing some webinars and workshops regarding this concept to get you pumped about the idea of improving your sustainability and, thus, improving your life. Join us as we seek to make the world a more sustainable place!
