The Adirondack Food Justice Summit - Looking toward the future
When sitting down to the dinner table, many of us don’t consider where our food came from, how the laborers were paid, or how our level of privilege determined what’s on our plate. In fact, I think many of us are guilty of giving little thought to our food system and the multiple-scales at which it operates (local, regional, national, and international).

Winter is for Skiing | Postholing in the Adirondacks
Getting outside and enjoying the snow and crisp air is a highlight of being in the Adirondacks in the winter. For those who love to cross-country ski, the season in the Adirondacks is too short. We seize every opportunity to feel the skis gliding across the snow, experience the quiet of the woods, and take in the beauty of a snowy trail.
