In exploring the food theme, we focused our attention on the growing movement to utilize produce from local farms in our schools, homes and restaurants. You’ll find articles on the various organizations facilitating this movement sprinkled throughout the issue. Thinking about trying one of those new healthy meal services popping up all over? We’ve rounded up the need-to-know details of four major players on page 46.
Our four-legged friends also deserve great food, so we tracked down the hard-working women peddling premium treats in Gainesville’s one-and-only food truck for dogs. Read the truck’s cool origin story on page 76.
On the Home section front, I’d like to welcome columnists Keri Leslie and Tarra Peterson, who braved the overwhelming Atlanta market to find the newest interior style trends, outlined on page 22.
I’d also like to give a big shout out to the great work being done by ProjectYouthBuild, a highly competitive program helping our community’s at-risk youth find success. Read how they’re building character by building community values on page 60.
On behalf of HOMEys past and present, thank you for reading.
