“I wake up in the morning and wash my face with soap that my friend made, I pour myself a cup of coffee that’s coffee roasted by somebody I know, every step of my day is built around the people that live here…. that’s my heart and soul… they support my business, I support their ventures and it's like a huge collaborative effort … and feel like that's step one. It’s laying the ground work within your community to create a web of support”

“Sourdough taught me….that it’s OK to do things differently…it’s OK to mess up, it’s OK not to have the perfect score on my loaf, it’s OK not to have oven spring somedays. All these things teach you valuable lessons and they take you to the next level. I really think it’s a journey that is ongoing for everybody and it’s so powerful to share with others because you end up learning so much from each other.”
