On the last Saturday in February, around forty people gathered together for a potluck meal in the Baltimore Free Farm warehouse. It was the monthly Foodmakers potluck, and the theme was “Seeds.”
In keeping with the monthly theme there was a seedling workshop, and afterward everyone shared the food they had brought: sesame seed ice cream, pear muffins, even homemade cider and beer.
If you’re reading The Baltimore Indypendent Reader, you probably have a thought or two about the consumer culture of gift-giving.
Sales, commercials, and endless Christmas marketing aren’t part of the lifestyle some of us choose to live. It can be tempting to want to stop giving gifts at all.
But gift-giving is fun!
