Take it Slow

Vacation week has begun. I am looking forward to a lot of quiet and relaxing. Taking this time to remember what it is to live in the present as too often I focus on the next thing in life and work. This time will be good to stop and slow down for a while.

Most of what I am looking forward to is spending time in the garden and being on Lake Michigan. It all sounds better than leaving here and paying for a fancy vacation. Why go away when everything I need to relax is right out my front door.

Happy Monday my friends!

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.
