"It's a collection of curated stories written by and for people living fully and digging deeper; people who are interested in deepening their connections to their families, communities, and themselves as they strive to live locally and closer to the ground."
Amanda Blake Soule is one quietly powerful woman. Her vision, values and actions are a constant source of inspiration... and affirmation.
LIVING FULLY, DIGGING DEEPERThese words represent Taproot and are also the compass for Amanda's daily life on a new homestead in rural Maine with her five children, ever present partner, and a growing menagerie of animals. But you can be a family of three toiling in an urban community garden and still use those words for your ultimate navigation. You see, whether you've been on a green and local path for years or are just awakening to the beauty of slower living, I believe Taproot has come at the perfect time for ALL of us seeking more substance and connection to the choices we make. I couldn't have been happier and more deeply honored when I received Amanda's invitation to create a project for this inaugural edition.The list of contributors and illustrators is AWESOME- completely amazing really, which makes me feel even more privileged to be a part of something so unique and exciting. And it's beautiful to boot!
This first issue is dedicated to SOIL... spring's muse. I hope you'll find my contribution, a pattern for a Reclaimed Burlap Garden Trug, to be the perfect project to get you excited for sowing seeds and sewing with rescued fabric!
