  1. Hello Lela, I am a resident of Portugal. I have been going over childhood memories and was wondering if you are the Lela Nargi who lived in Portugal for a short while with your parents when you were a child. If so, we played together a couple of times! Your Dad’s name was John and your mother was Stephanie, if I remember correctly. You had a vast doll collection. Regards, Teresa


  2. I’m on the board of my local Vermont co-op and was forwarded your recent article “Community Food Co-ops Are Thriving During the Pandemic” by a colleague. I found it very informative re how co-ops differ from grocery stores and especially loved the phrase “patchouli scented days” in a section describing the typical history of food co-ops. I would be very interested in sharing this article with my local paper to inform others about the advantages and structure of food co-ops. Please advise how this could be accomplished.

    • Hi Louise, and I’m so sorry I’m only seeing your message today; WordPress is supposed to alert me when there’s a message and it didn’t. If you’re still interested in sharing the piece (which I hope is still relevant all these months later), I recommend reaching out to my editor at Civil Eats, Matthew Wheeland: Thanks so much for reaching out, and for your nice words about the article. Best, Lela
