Fall stirrings

Things are a tad quieter around here because I’m doing two really cool things at the moment. First, my half-time job with Texas Farmers’ Market is keeping me busy because we’re planning the second annual Austin Fermentation Festival to be held on October 25. I’m really excited for a larger venue, lots of fun stuff (like a kraut mob inspired by Boston & San Diego friends) and Jenny McGruther’s visit.

The other super-cool thing I’m up to is taking a 9-month herbalism course with the dear friend (and new business partner!) who runs Sacred Journey School of Herbalism here in Austin. We went on a campout to Garner State Park (you better listen to the song inspired by the park here) this weekend. It was magical. Plant walks, herbal knowledge, two-stepping at the last dance of the season, swimming in the Frio river, a shock of milky way and plenty of shooting stars.

A photographer friend who is also in the class shared a few photos with me, too.

What’s on your fall agenda? What’s stirring in you?

That class sounds super cool! Once a year, one of my best friends and her family take a trip to Garner State Park. I've never had a chance to visit but it sounds like a pretty amazing place.

What a great way to welcome Autumn in Texas Kate! I am so looking forward to the Fermentation Festival. Thank you for all of the amazing work you do for this city. Truly.
