On Sunday, November 5, 2017 at Shortridge High School, I participated in The Spirit & Place Power Festival event The Power of Food: Seven Short Stories. I signed up for this event not knowing if I would be selected as a storyteller. When I heard I had been selected, I was excited and then I started to panic. I couldn’t figure out which story to tell; I have so many. Typically when I tell stories, I write them on my garden blog. I can write as much or as little as I want
I'm excited to share I am one of seven storytellers selected to speak during the 2017 Spirit & Place Power Festival during the Power of Food: Seven Short Stories event. I speak in front of students, lead professional development for colleagues, and teach a class at our local university, but a little nervousness is wrapped up in my excitement. I will have the opportunity (besides this blog) to share on a public platform why I garden and encourage other people to do the same.
