Through her personal and professional journey, Margie has realized that food choices should not be complicated or stressful, as stress is hazardous to well-being. Food should provide pleasure and nourishment for the body and spirit. That’s why Margie works to:

  1. Promote purchasing from local food producers for fresh, flavorful food and beverage choices and development of community.
  2. Help people develop cooking skills by offering hands-on cooking classes and instructional videos.

Developing any skill-set requires time and perseverance. But being able to prepare your own fresh, fabulous tasting and nourishing food to share is definitely worth the energy investment.
