Seeing the connective tissue of community become visible makes our hearts sing at WholeHeart. This year, we made two new friends in Maine who embody this form of love-in-action: Heather Omand and Bonnie Rukin. They shared their friendship and passion for healthy food systems and greatly enriched our circles.
