Hey everyone, Adam and Jenn here. We hope you’ll join us on our journey as we seek to become simple world stewards. You’re probably wondering how we got here. Well, we both grew up in the Wisconsin countryside, helping our parents through gardening, raising animals, and other various “country” activities. This time helped instill a deep love of the land that would later shape our lives. Moving onto college, we met in an Environmental Studies 101 course, and from there, began the journey towards realizing that our very separate, individual dreams actually paired together in an encouraging and beautiful way. Fancy that. So, post-college, we married, and have been doing the marriage thing for about 1 1/2 years now. We’ve used this time to dream together about how we can change the world, and we’re now settling on the desire to live and eat simply, and help others do the same.
The things you’ll find in this blog reflect our passions. Adam in particular cares about cheese, cooking, local food, upcycling (in a very raw form), and sustainability in the terms of everyday energy usage. Jenn, on the other hand, cares about food (in the growing sense more than the cooking sense), native landscaping, reducing chemical usage in everyday life, and sustainability in the sense of passing on knowledge to the next generation.
So there you have it, we’re just simple people sharing our life story.
