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! #66 - Emily Cayer of We Knead Nature, talking about turning the Food Chain into a Circle.

Emily Cayer is bringing a lifetime of wildlife conservation and a love of nature to the baking community, through her new collaborative venture, We Knead Nature.

Emily is organizing farmers, millers, bakers and brewers to ensure we are all giving back to the source of our great grains, nature itself.

In this episode, Emily shares the mission of We Knead Nature and the progress the group has made over the first few months of existence.  Mark also discovers how Emily's love of nature and background as a conservation biologist helped make We Knead Nature a reality.

Emily will also be at the amazing Kneading Conference in Maine this weekend, so if you’re heading to Skowhegan, keep an eye out for her!
