I've been listening to Karin Velez's podcast Just Grow Something for quite a while, because I love how she offers helpful, bite sized truth bombs about growing produce every episode - and she also has this voice that is so easy for me to listen to... Karin's story about where her podcast came from is fascinating, and she is offering super helpful info in all areas of growing food in bite sized amounts to help me understand how and why to make changes in my gardening practices.We also discusse...
Man, I loved this conversation with Carrie Hoffman of Bigger Life Adventures! I was sold with sustainable travel, but this conversation is SO much more- Carrie lives the sustainable lifestyle - She lives on 10 acres in the mountains of Arizona! You can probably hear (and hopefully can tune out) the crackly sound, but she lives out in the open and that's our reality - if you can let go of that sound, you'll get her important messageAs a Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor, Carrie takes her role ve...
For the 100th episode of Grounded in Maine, I'm celebrating with this PANEL of women to talk about menopause! We discuss the highs and lows, what we expected about menopause, the reality, and our hopes. Whether you are in your 20s, 40s, 60s, female or male, menopause effects us all. Andrea Canny has a dream of creating an educational and peaceful oasis on the land where she's living, with gardening and more to connect people with nature.Find Andrea here:https://www.andreacanny.comhttps:...
I have a big request, you guys - I need some MALE people to give their perspective on menopause - I'm really doing it - I've been talking about the Menopause Panel since November/December, and it's finally happening. I'm so excited for these conversations, and to help people feel empowered and not feel broken when their body is changing in ways we aren't expecting; that we are not alone, and we don't need to quietly suffer with the changes. In talking, we learn ways that have helped...
Oh man, I learned SO much about energy audits from Colin McCullough! He's been doing audits for a long time, and is passionate about it. He is one of the very few people I've talked to who said he would do his job for free if he didn't need money to survive - that says so much to me about him. Energy Audits help you to see how to make your home more efficient - and it might not be what you think - it wasn't what I thought, at least... He also offers consulting services, so definitely hi...
Oh my gosh, our friend Ande Lyons introduced us, and I was thrilled to get to talk to Cathy Nesbitt of Cathy's Composters about worm composting; I was told she also taught "Laughter Yoga," which I guess made sense, and was very curious about, but when I met Cathy on Zoom, I was instantly sold. Cathy has been teaching worm composting for over 2 decades (her WHY is so inspiring!), and has been teaching Laughter yoga for several years now - she has a weekly Chuckle Club zoom meeting on Tuesday m...
Mary Lewis has her own podcast called A Tiny Homestead, where she talks with other homesteaders and people doing "homestead-y" things... She's had some pretty impressive guests, like Joel Salatin and me... It makes me think of my plan before this podcast, so I'm loving following Mary to see how that goes!Mary's message that she's hoping you take away from this conversation: "take care of yourself, take care of the Earth, and always be curious-" you have to love that, right? Pretty much ...
Y'all, if this conversation with Shelly Cunningham doesn't make you want to shop at Consignment stores over cheaply made box store clothes, I don't know what will change your mind- I didn't know what I've been missing! Shelly bought ReStyle, a consignment boutique, 12 years ago, and moved it a couple of times, but is now settled on Rte 1 in Freeport heading toward Yarmouth. When she invited me to come and see her place, I was curious, but not being a clothing shopper, a little scared that I'd...
Have you guys seen Monti Carlo on Instagram? How about the Food Network or other Food TV shows? I feel so out of the loop; I've watched so little TV the last bunch of years that I didn't know she was on TV... BUT I found her on Instagram, and watched her great food saving tip reels. And then one day I saw her back story, and I had to learn more about her. She was so generous to accept my podcast invite, and share her knowledge and passion for food waste with us, and I'm so excited to share th...

This is Maine Community Solar's 2nd appearance on Grounded in Maine, and I couldn't be more thrilled!We met Tony Napolitano in the fall when he told us about Maine Community Solar and why it's a great opportunity for Mainers, and other states where there's a Community Solar farm available to utilize - this time Tony's bringing his Business Partner/Cousin John, and they're 'debating' whether trees or seas are more worthy of a donation (hint: they're BOTH worthy!) in honor of Earth Month. We ta...
