America is falling out of love with traditional literary practice when we have everything to lose. The latest Pew Research Center study on the matter reports that only 72% of American adults have read at least one book in the last year, a 7% decline since 2011. But what about our infants? Our toddlers? Our school aged youth? With adult reading wavering, we cannot ignore the brain-building opportunity that reading aloud to our children affords.

Take Back the Night

Not my Mother's Vegetable Stock

I’m looking at a vegetable stock that may smell, taste and cook like it came from my mother’s kitchen, but it certainly doesn’t look like it did. It’s purple.

Let’s back up. There I am, a little into my eighth week of service at Groundwork Lawrence, when Maria Natera, our Healthy Living Programs Manager, reminded me that Farmer Dave had brought our first CSA share, the drop-off conveniently located downstairs.
