Pure |  The Fresh Exchange


Somedays you just need to keep things extra simple and uncomplicated. This week is going to be a little hectic, planning some new posts for the blog, bringing in a new contributor, making big business decisions, and designing some super cool type for a client. It all adds up over time so today I needed something to find some calmness in. All these pieces felt as if they said purity, calm, and peace to me. A little easy on the mind. I dig that.

This week I will bringing you a recap of my talk from Alt Summit so feel free to comment here with some of specifics you are hoping to hear about. My talk was only about 10 minutes but I can expand for any of you who attended and so on. Excited to share more.

I hope you find this little collection to be peaceful and calming to your week.

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.
