Lessons in Action: An Interview with Jesse Wilson

One blustery Colorado morning at the Pikes Perk in Downtown Colorado Springs, I met with Jesse Wilson, actor, artist, human. He’s a man of many talents, many masks, and many roles. His recent TedTalks video focuses on his series for personal empowerment, Lessons from the Stage, and after watching the video, I was intrigued. His passion and surety that the technologies taught to actors could make a difference in average people’s lives

Joel Salatin (America’s Libertarian Agrarian Intellectual) Reveals His Writing Secrets

As is true for most readers of garden lit, Joel Salatin entered my awareness in 2006 via Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. While I had always been interested in farming and food production, I equated Salatin, a self-described “Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic Farmer” with ranching, and so wasn’t compelled, right off, to read his books.

Fifty Shades in the Garden—an Interview with Sandra Knauf

Fifty Shades of Green, a book Sandra Knauf published last summer, is a feminist/gardener response to that other book. It’s a wonderfully entertaining anthology of twelve naughty gardening stories with strong female protagonists. The talented authors of these tales hail from across the U.S. and Britain—and most are genuine hands-in-the-dirt gardeners. US Represented caught up with Sandra to find out what inspired Fifty Shades of Green and how the book took
