Living in a town of 500 people, growing up in a mobile home with acres surrounding, and farms surrounding that, at first I felt underprivileged. Now, as a young adult developing in this high paced world of cell phones, McDonalds, and the internet, I feel quite fortunate of my past. Living near the farms, living on a tight budget,and living the slow, steady rural life, I was taught some very important things; taught to grow food, taught to fix my own clothes, taught to cook, and taught to preserve, and taught to enjoy working hard. I would like to revive those skills for my generation and new generations to come. I am Megan French, I am a student, a baker, a sister, a daughter, a lover, and an optimist of our future. But this future, I believe, all starts with food.
