In preparation for Season Two, this episode is a special collection of highlights from Season One! The highlights are in chronological order, giving you the opportunity to revisit key parts from earlier episodes or catch you up on ones you missed.
My main hope is that this collection encourages a new look at what Modern Home Economics can be, and that these interviews empower you to make Modern Home Economics your own in your home and community.
Season two will start next week, and it will include interviews with the founder of Falling Fruit which is an organization that encourages urban foraging, Growing Gardens which is our local community garden resource, Food Lab which is a community learn-to-cook resource, Violet Hive which is an art therapy hive, Marty's Meals which is not only a nutritious pet food product but also a way of life for the whole family, and many more so make sure to keep an eye out next week for the start of season two!
