Live simply.
Breathe deeply.
Stop thinking about tomorrow.
Take in the moment I am in.
Be the nice one.
Sleep in more.
Take more adventures.
Love genuinely.
Find a way to do whatever you do with passion.

Realize success is not about the things you obtain, the things you can brag about, or how much better you were. Instead it is about how you loved, lived, had passion for what you did in this life, and sacrificed to make life for others better.


Just some things that have been swimming in my head and I have been challenging myself with the last few weeks. This is just my little dream of how I want life and I am redefining success in my mind. How do you see success?




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.
