Raw, adjective: 2. not having undergone processes of preparing, dressing, finishing, refining, or manufacture

So pleased to have my summery story on the yoga of urban homesteading published in the latest Yoga Journal. Pick up a copy of the June issue for interviews with fab Berkeley chef Samin Nosrat and Oakland-based DIY cookbook author Vanessa Barrington, along with a few great recipes for Bread and Butter Pickles, Plum Verbena Jam (yum), and Heirloom Tomato Salsa.

(And a big thanks to all of you -- you know who you are -- who've shared your own urban homesteading stories with me over the last few months. I'm so inspired by what you're doing, with your own hands, in your own ways.) This practice, this union, this yoga really is anywhere you're willing to see it...whether that's the kitchen, the garden, the sidewalk, the coffee shop, or yes, even the mat.

Happy reading.
