I'm Kate, I'm based in the hills of Western Virginia, with winter time in New Orleans and occasional forays to other places.
This is my personal blog where I explore some of my interests: daikon radishes of unusual size, homesteading, ecological design, foraging and farming/gardening. I'll also share some of my work/interests in social stuff like justice, equity, race/gender/class, hopefully contributing to a larger conversation where we envision resilient and inclusive alternatives to our current situation. I do (or did?) a lot of work with local food systems which will probably come through here.
There is also some rambly musings, poetry, and haiku rants. I am passionate about nature connection both at the personal level and as an educator (thanks in part to this book).
I'm also generally pretty into travel and adventure ("You spelunk?!") Holler!
