    Joined Nextdoor for my neighborhood, so far I haven't done much but I do see a lot of people sharing plant starts, produce, and advice. Seems like a good way to get to know the community!

      leaving extra plants/veggies outside to share can also grow community

    The last couple weeks I focused on reducing my meat and animal product intake. Overall I found this to be very easy, I'm not a big meat eater anyway and now that I cook at home almost exclusively it has been even easier to focus on a plant based diet. The one place I found myself slipping up the most was butter, sometimes I would put it in the pan without even thinking. Does anyone know a good butter alternative?

    For my first 'action' I focused on hiking and exploring my area. I have been visiting with family in Colorado which was a nice escape from the smoke in Oregon. It has also served as a good reminder of the importance of forest management and how much I have come to value the ability to be outside in the last six months.
