The blog is my Whole Self Home Base,
where all the aspects of my life come together through my writing.

It’s like a bread recipe - bring a wide variety of ingredients together and create something way better than the individual parts.

You’ll find riffs on community and connection, musings on baking and fermentation, reflections on travel experiences and much more.



Rise Up! #59: A ConferenceCast: Recap of A Taste For Grain in Montreal, Quebec


I am back from Montreal and my head is swimming.

Not only did I have an awesome weekend in a beautiful city, eating my way through every boulangerie, brasserie, marche and cafe that I could find, I had the best day ever at A Taste For Grain, the annual grain gathering put on by a great group of bakers and grain heads.

We talked about the local grain economy. We learned about fresh milled flour. We learned about community organization. And we even learned about Nixamal. All in a laid back, mellow, caring and sharing atmosphere.

And then, we ate some more!

In this Rise Up! episode I talk about all that and more. So listen on and hear all about a special day that should certainly be on your travel calendar in 2020. Enjoy the show!

You can listen to this episode using your favourite podcast app, via the podcast show page or using the audio player below (or if you can’t see it, it’s here.)
