Last summer, I was set up in front of Batch Nashville at the Nashville Farmer's Market hosting an elderberry and bee pollen Teach & Taste event as part of their Meet the Maker series when I encountered William, one of the editors of Edible Nashville. He gifted me a copy of the current summer edition of the magazine and I was hooked.
I haven't missed reading an issue since and now have it delivered to my door bi-monthly. Edible is dedicated to telling the stories of Music City's farmers, artisans, chefs, restaurants, home cooks and gardeners. It's a free magazine distributed throughout Nashville and contains beautiful photos, meaningful articles and delicious recipes.
You can imagine how excited I was when I met editor and founder, Jill Melton, this past September as she visited the Harbin Hollow booth at The Produce Place's Fall Fest in Sylvan Park. I was even more excited when she reached out to feature Harbin Hollow Elderberry Syrup in this winter's Green Issue, an issue Jill describes as "not about dieting, but eating better; not about resolutions, but life changes; not about frantic detoxing, but balance; not about ourselves, but our community."
As a promoter of living a balanced lifestyle, supporting local businesses, investing in local artisans, and just trying to be better versus perfect, I'd say a write-up in . is quite the fitting medium for a write-up on our elderberry syrup.
Thank you, Edible Nashville for the shout-out and for all you do to support and promote local purveyors.
