More About Me

My name is Nan and my husband Scott Schwartz is the Chef owner of 29 South, a farm to table bistro on Amelia Island off the coast of Florida.  While he runs the restaurant, I tend the large organic garden behind it and manage our farm partnership program, as well as work as a freelance writer.  We have two little girls, two cats, two dogs...needless to say we are busy as hell.  We like long walks on the beach and wine from the Rhone region of France... just kidding... sort of.

I started this blog as a means to explore the relationship of food and ecology...our relationship with food on a daily basis, whether it be in conversation, on our plates, or happened upon on the floor of a public restroom.

Ecology is the relationship between organisms and their environment.  Nothing more nothing less.  And all organisms have to eat, one way or another.  So this is my meager attempt at examining food...what it means in relation to the world around us.  Thanks for listening.
