Locally Grown is not a blog about farmer’s markets and local jams in mason jars. I’m sorry about the deception.

I’m Erika, and I was born and raised in New York City.  I, like many New York City locals, often forget about all the incredible opportunities around me. I want to start savoring every minute in the city that never sleeps. It’s troubling that tourists seem to have all the fun, so I’m out searching for local adventures. Every week, I’m making a conscious effort to do something uncomfortable, unfamiliar, rewarding, or exciting.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
