Read the Spring Issue of CapeWomenOnline magazine
The Spring Issue of CapeWomenOnline magazine is now available to read online. Please take a few minutes to check it out, and see what's new! We've got a lot of new voices and a lot of great stories to share with our readers.
Our publisher, Nicola Burnell, has highlighted several key stories in her publisher's note, but I want to point out that my sister Tamara has contributed a wonderful article about the importance of CSAs and eating locally grown food for our Environment page. For those who don't know, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and means that the farmers sell "shares" of the harvest before the growing season even gets going.
My sister lives in northern Vermont, and for the past several years has been managing an organic farm. She visits us here on the Cape a lot in her "off" season, and we go visit her to help on the farm during summer vacation. My kids all love working on the farm with their aunt!
Also of note is an article by Jen Villa, a photographer and collage artist, and owner of The Little Beach Gallery in Hyannis. Jen grew up summering on Cape Cod but moved to California after college to have an "endless summer" experience. A year ago, she moved home to open her own gallery on Main Street. Her story is inspiring, and makes me long for warm summer evenings of wandering down Main Street to check out the various shops and art galleries!
Summer is still just a dream, but Spring is definitely here!
