Wendy’s Morning Announcement: Movin’ On

It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting across from Chris at a Bagger Dave’s media event. We were misfits in the sea of mommy bloggers. We discovered that we both shared a passion for promoting local food. He from the restaurant angle, me from the farm to table angle.

I was a member of EatGR and saw the potential for a stand alone site that would provide a landing place of sorts and be a platform to tell the stories that weren’t necessarily being told in the group. We decided to join forces and the rest is history. It’s been a crazy ride!

With things behind the scenes mostly set up, I’ve decided to leave the EatGR team to focus on Eat Local West Michigan, which has been a bit neglected over the past year.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I will still participate in the group and may even see you at an upcoming meetup. And, Chris and I may team up to promote some of the farm to table restaurants and other places where it makes sense to partner together to promote local food.

In the meantime, if you’d like to learn to learn more about farm to table and farm to glass in West Michigan, you can catch me at:
