This is the Harvest Issue. I’m glad other people are harvesting because, through the blessing of farmers markets and friends, I won’t starve. My own garden was just plain dumb this year. I could blame it on the sudden death of my most-favorite-dog-ever, Tesla, and my decision to bury him in the best garden plot in the yard. But as he died on June 29, well past prime planting time, you can see that’s a lame excuse.
The old model of a small, independent magazine existing solely on advertising dollars is coming to an end. CATALYST has always been an endeavor that exists on the support of the community (we’re where the business and non-profit community has chosen to place their advertising dollars), but now, we’d like to ask for that support more directly, from a few community members who see value in what we offer. For CATALYST to keep providing the news and information we’ve been proud to offer for the last 33 years, we need support, in the form of direct memberships.
