I am so excited to begin to see the colors change around the Leelanau Penninsula. I see trucks full to the brim with apples and all I can think about is drinking cider, sitting by a fire, and wearing big sweaters with boots. I love the beauty of changing seasons and I cannot believe it is almost October!!! How crazy right?!?! I know it won’t be long till I am pulling out my snow boots and shoveling snow instead of going for runs. 

What is your favorite part of Fall?


Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
