Shared meals and late nights

With a new month, comes a new round up of Our Growing Edge. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, December’s host is Leah from Sharing The Food We Love.

2014 Manifesto

Maybe you see things on this list that you hope to do more or less of too. Do you have any things in 2014 that you hope to see more or less of?
