Year of Plenty

“Year of Plenty” Book Release Celebration, Sat. April 2, 2pm at Auntie’s Bookstore


I'll be at Auntie's Bookstore tomorrow, April 2 at 2pm. Along with signing books, I'll speak on the Mezzanine about the process of writing the book, and offer some thoughts about the importance of telling the story of our experiences in the Inland Northwest. Second Harvest Plant-A-Row for the Hungry will be there giving away seeds, and Spokane Community Garden folks will be there doing a seed planting activity with kids. It should be fun and I'd love to have you join us.

Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at
