Do You Grow Your Own?
Do you like to grow your own fruits, vegetables, or herbs? Do you raise animals that provide food for your family? Do you hunt or forage for any of your food? Are you interested in organic, sustainable practices and seasonal foods? If you do any of these and blog regularly or occasionally about what you cook with your homegrown, home raised, hunted, or foraged foods, then Grow Your Own is for you!
The blogging event started in August of 2007 and celebrates its first anniversary next month. Bloggers from all over the world join in each round, and the round-ups have included a wide variety of ingredients and dishes from Asia, Europe, Australia, North America, and South America. Grow Your Own runs year-round, providing bloggers from all locations a chance to showcase what is in season in their area. As interest has grown, the event has expanded to twice a month with deadlines on the 15th and 30th, and previous participants share the hosting opportunities.
Any blogger can participate, you do not have to write exclusively about food or cooking. To learn more about the event, how to join in the fun, and who's hosting, visit the Grow Your Own page at Andrea's Recipes.
