So lately I’ve been refocusing what our vision is for Popes Produce. What we came up with was –‘crafting locally grown abundance’ and what we’re encouraging with our education program is ‘inspiring home grown food adventures’. We want to have fun, empower people, get them curious about their food and playing outside.
So what bliss – planting out the last seedlings before lunch and a lovely friend surprised me with the offer of a trade – hand caught (by him) lobster for Veggie Wraps. Hmmmm…..edible awesomeness hand caught for hand grown in our backyard….paired with a home made garlic aioli (garlic generously gifted by a beautiful local grower) for dinner – hard to go past.
And the icing on the happy garden cake – a drop in (we’re talking under 5 minutes) by a dear friend who visits only very sporadically with a big pile of horse manure to keep our fruit trees happy.
So our systems are well fed and our heart is filled by random acts of kindness.
Spread it around – random gifts of generosity fill the soul and keep our communities knitted together.
