    I love my CSA in Moscow Idaho and will be stopping to visit the farm with my kids next week!  I am looking forward to picking a food documentary to watch with my kids this week too.

    I signed up to work with Lapwai Community Garden  and University of Idaho Extension and have had two whole days outside working in a garden last week.  I was wonderful.  My other work does not bring me outside for whole days at a time.  The soil is very healthy and the plant starts were ready to get in the ground.  There are several restoration project and local, traditional food efforts being implemented here, right next to the health clinic.  It is a wonderful place reconnecting people to the land and food.

    Today's discussion was a great opportunity to meet more NWEI staff that have helped with CSL redesign and connection to curriculum. I will start teaching NS150-Intro to Natural Sciences (online course at Lewis-Clark State College) in  2 weeks and use the new edition of the book.  I am grateful for the new materials and expertise - my goal is to use this time to gain new ideas to update my online course, refresh my knowledge and resources, and gain a motivation boost for my teaching :) THanks!
