Welcome Mother Earth Living readers and Mother Earth Fair participants!

I'm thrilled that one of my favorite magazines, Mother Earth Living, is featuring the first chapter of Wildly Affordable Organic in its March/April issue plus three recipes. I hope to meet many of you at my workshops for the Mother Earth News Fairs in Asheville NC April 12 and 13 and Seven Springs Pennsylvania September 12 through 14.

Why cook the Wildly Affordable Organic way?

Go green for $5 a day or less with mostly organic or sustainably raised ingredients. Or focus on cost to save even more! Either way, you'll probably be spending less than the food-stamp allowance for someone with no other means. We can afford to eat wonderful food that is good for our bodies and for our planet. Vote with your fork for a better world.
