About Us

Hello and welcome to our little slice of the web. We are Chrissie and Aaron, the pair writing to you here at our Little House on the Suburban Prairie. We met as musicians, grew to become friends, and eventually fell in love, got married, bought a house and some furry friends. We are passionate about good food, great friends, living locally, and making the world just a little bit better than the way we found it.

Our goal is to grow, to create, to eat, and to live each day with enthusiasm and thoughtfulness. Like most people in the urban and suburban sprawl of our country, the resources available to us for this type of journey are limited. Our yard isn't huge and only a small portion of it gets ample sunlight. The freshest and most local ingredients that we can't grow are expensive and sometimes hard to come by. But there is still loads of potential. Our hope is to tap that potential to its fullest possible extent.

Why did we decide to blog? We know the information is out there and that there is very little that we're going to say that someone else hasn't already put on the web. But, we're also betting that there are a lot of people like us out there. People who just have their toe in the water and are curious about the various facets of urban farming, sustainable living, home cooking, and everything else that comes with those ventures. By blogging we can help inform all of you, and in turn, you can inform us too. We can create a virtual network of support for anyone who may be interested in forming their own urban or suburban prairie.

We don't claim to know it all. We're learning, and we'd love to learn from you too! Leave us comments or drop us an email at oursuburbanprarie at gmail dot com.

Thanks for stopping by!
