December 5 is World Soil Day. What does this mean, and why should we care about soil health? It’s a lot more important that you might think! Here, I’m delighted to share with you an interview with Holly Rose. She’s an environmentalist, a writer, and a regenerative agriculture advocate from whom I have learned so much since first following her blog and Instagram. If you haven’t heard of her or regenerative agriculture before, you’re in for a treat! I sincerely hope you enjoy this interview, and I highly recommend following her online to learn much, much more.

Toddlers + transit. We’re a one-car family, and since my husband needs the car for work, my son and I are without a car during the day.

This is a huge shift from when I was a young girl—there was almost no reliable public transportation.
Taking a toddler on transit is an interesting experience, but overall I think it’s a positive one.
