Tempting as it might be to pigeonhole Ashley English and her ken as “neo-back-to-the-landers-cum-homesteading-writer-teacher-environmentalists”, you’d be complicating it just a bit in her eyes. She’s just trying to make a good life. Without question, a good life requires good food and good friends, and English has them in spades. Why not get together with dozens of hungry neighbors and share a meal of each other’s harvests? If that’s too “The First Thanksgiving” for you, we understand. But don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
