This is the perfect time of year for adventures abroad! As I am plotting my own return to Paris I have been re-reading literary classics like Down-and-Out in Paris and London by George Orwell and A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. Those books definitely have me in the mood for a good trench coat and a quiet café on a rainy day. Wherever you are headed next- go there in style.

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.
