Happy Wednesday friends. We are prepping to leave for a weekend in Detroit for a Simple Evening with Mcclure’s and with some other amazing people. Very exciting stuff, but upon arriving home I am looking forward to focusing more on the above.

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.
