As an avid follower of Rohan Anderson’s Whole Larder Love, I have read his story and understood his motivation for engaging in a lifestyle in which he grows, forages, and locally sources food for himself and his family. I intellectually grasped his passion and ethos in his approach to a lifestyle that embraces the simplicity and integrity of sourcing one’s own food. But last night at Portland’s Ned Ludd, Jason from Applied Observation and I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Rohan himself, as well as hear him tell his story in person. The man has an energy, generosity, and purpose that is difficult to explain and probably impossible to fully grasp unless you meet him in person. I left the event with a feeling of inspiration that I haven’t experienced in awhile, and I encourage anyone who lives near an upcoming WLL event venue to go meet and chat with Ro yourself. I took a couple of pics during the evening, but admittedly they were an afterthought on account of the great food (prepared by Ned Ludd from recipes in WLL), introductions, and conversation that accompanied the evening.
