On this night, January 1, first of two full moon this month, I want to look back on 2017 and forward towards 2018.
Thank you for supporting Pickle Witch in 2017!
I quit my day job, legitimized my pickle business in the eyes of the state, participated in four #SupportLocalHustle pop ups ( and organized three of them), met TONS of new queer, trans, BIPOC friends, wrote about the unbearable whiteness of craft fairs and about alternative models, am able to serve 22 people with my pilot pickle subscription (CSF- community supported fermentation), had my first farmers market vending experience.
All while taking locally grown, chemical-free produce and making delicious fermented pickles, here on occupied Dakota territory.
Looking ahead to 2018
I start this year with the intention to honor the people indigenous to this land, center QT BIPOC in all my work, and to destroy anti-Blackness and white supremacy with every breath.
I start this year with the intention to continue engaging food in my personal healing practice, bringing fermented vegetables to as many people as possible.
I start this year with the intention to try new things fearlessly and with passion.
I start this year with the intention to invest in my communities, building each other up so we can tear these oppressive systems down.
I start this year with the intention to create meaningful connections that are nourishing and help me achieve my goals.
I start this year with the intention to bring you pickle workshops, pickle parties, pop ups, swag, opportunities to support community, and more!
