Happy Weekend  |  The Fresh Exchange


The snow has been falling in the most amazing giant flakes for a couple days now. Though this means I will be suiting up to shovel the porch off (before it caves in from the weight) it creates the most amazing scene outside. When you live somewhere like Northern Michigan there are times all the entertainment you need is what is happening out your window. No need for art when you have a view like this from your couch.

This weekend I plan to find time to go outside and get in a good hike. We plan to visit a new restaurant in town and do quite a bit of work on our new business. It is busy around here and we love it. We love it so much. Mike will kick off with you all Monday…you all ready for a man around these parts? I will warn you all he is even more real than I am. He plans to bring you all some tips about business, being a creative, and other great knowledge he has on all sorts of great topics all while bringing his manly edge to the fashion and design style around here.

I hope you all had a wonderful valentines day! We got to have a nice celebration for Mike’s birthday. When is ever not fun celebrating a birthday?

Also if you missed it this week I talked about making a really tough decision even amongst all these exciting ones.

Cheers to the weekend my friends. Let’s go make.

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.
