One more farm to pay tribute to…thanks to our fellow blogger AGRIgirl–Life Lessons From My Kitchen.
Please check out AGRIgirl, it is packed with great content and valuable information. Tammy’s love of good food, life lessons from her kitchen, leadership skills and an advocate for creating healthier communities is a food journal readers MUST!
Desert Roots Farm which is located in Queen Creek, Arizona. Farm owner, Kelly Saxer has been tending to this 33-acre CSA farm selling fresh high quality vegetables and herbs since 2001 without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Bringing back the farm to the community is her main goal. A win-win relationship everyone benefits from. When you sign up for Kelly’s CSA you will receive a box of seasonal foodstuffs throughout the farming season. Know your farmer, know how the land is being treated, know your food.
Sun protection never looks so good…these Tula hats have timeless style and casual elegance. Our favorite hats are the Somerset Black Bow $43.99 and the Brook’s $33.99…both UPF 50+.
Made from supple rubber and completely waterproof, they provide all day comfort. We just think these dirt kickers are so fetching.
Comes in Red and Hunter Green.
City Planter by Potted
How cool are these swanky hanging gardens…they are all the rage. Made of 14 gauge steel and hand finished with a sealed rust patina finish. Each piece is one-of-a-kind. Love the city slicker style.

Slow Food: Collected Thoughts on Taste, Tradition, and the Honest Pleasures of Food, by Slow Food Editore, Carlo Petrini
The Slow Food Movement shares lessons about how to cook well, eat well and live well. We are encouraged by Petrini to enjoy life to its fullest. Bring back the pleasures of the palate, focus on being convivial, nourishing our homes, communities and the humanity of food. A fresh look on an alternative lifestyle to the fast paced world we live in. I don’t know who said this, but boy does it resinate loud and clear for me…he who lives slow, lives well.
