Agricultural Disruptor Brick Street Farms is Bringing Farm to Fork in a City Near You! With Founder Shannon O'Malley
Have you ever stopped to wonder how far that produce had to travel to get to your grocery store? Did you know that it likely traveled over 1600 miles to get there and exchanged hands 5 times before landing on the shelves? Mind blowing, right? Shannon O'Malley, CEO and Founder of Brick Street Farms, has been disrupting traditional ways of agriculture since she founded the urban farming company right here in our Sunshine City. Shannon's background as an electrical engineer and her husband's background in technology offered the perfect partnership to bring this dream to life. They use innovative technology to automate their large-scale, vertical farming in shipping containers, which provides a soil-less, climate controlled system, operating independently from land, climate or seasons. Their leafy greens are certified non-GMO, chemical free and wash-free, all grown sustainably using 90% less water and 30% less energy. With their unique "Hub" model, they can produce over 60 acres each month on less than a 1/3 acre city lot. That, my friends, is sustainability in action. They are farm to fork in less than 36 hours! I could go on forever with all the details that will blow your mind, but how about we just dive into the episode and hear it from Shannon herself? I promise it will have you thinking differently about where and how you buy your produce.

Spreading the Magic of St Pete Through a Travel Guide with Authors, Meredith Gaunce & Melanie Bowman
As you know by now, our small businesses are at the heart of what draws people to St Pete and keeps locals feeling so lucky we get to live here. Authors, Meredith Gaunce & Melanie Bowman captured that essence on the pages of their travel book, Traveling St Pete: A Girls Guide. Having done a similar guide for Savannah, Georgia, Meredith was approached by Melanie to create one for the city they had both fallen in love with after moving to St Pete. Add in a pandemic, and it was the perfect time to show our small businesses some extra love. Whether you are planning a girls weekend getaway or a staycation, you can easily craft the perfect outing with a little help from their guide!

Gift Giving as an Art with Allie Padin, owner of The Canary
Those of you that know me really well, know that gift giving is a love language of mine. Well, I can tell you that Allie Padin, owner of The Canary, has this talent in spades. Allie opened her shop in November on the coveted 600 block of Central. She specializes in creative gifts and home furnishing, a "happy store" that is fun to shop and has something for everyone! In our conversation we learned how her background with retail and curating stunning window displays for major retailers along 5th Ave in NYC helped fuel her passion for design and creativity. Outside of the retail space, Allie pursued interior design in Westchester New York. Like so many others, she was ready for a change of scenery and after visiting someone she knew in St Pete, immediately fell in love and quickly moved here. She had always wanted to open a gift and home store and when the opportunity presented itself, she took it. If you have shopped inside The Canary already or even just walked by the window, you've probably noticed her adorable shop cat, Gator. She will jokingly say that Gator is the real reason people stop by, and while that might be true, I also think it's because you can't help but have your mood lightened when you step into the sunny shop, aptly named The Canary.

Making Fashion Sustainable with Valhalla Resale
In today's episode we hear from Valhalla Resale owner, Danielle Ferrari, on why sustainability in the fashion world is so important. In a world where we only wear 20% of the clothing in our closets (yikes!), waste abounds as we continue to buy new things and this perpetuates the cycle. Learning this stat sparked Danielle to create a space where all of the clothing in store comes from the community. She has a passion for helping create a circle or share economy in the Tampa Bay area, with hopes that this idea will spark others to think of ways they can contribute to this movement. She even hopes to spread the Valhalla love into other markets around the US in the future! How exciting would that be! You'll learn about the environmental and social impact that a concept like Valhalla offers with their clothing rental membership and even just by simply shopping in store. We can make a difference and look good all at the same! Now that sounds like a win to me :)

This is the dilemma that Alison Amick kept coming across when she did her family portrait sessions.

Alison uses fun and interactive ways to get the kids engaged in the shoot and doesn’t worry about getting that traditional image. Instead she focuses on their personality shining through. In this episode, you’ll learn why Alison has a passion for this type of photography and how she is pioneering the space of family and children portraits.

Carrying on your Grandfather's Legacy through Food with Huggers Food Truck
Food trucks have become very popular in recent years. Well, you might be surprised to know of a St Pete native that had his grandfather inspire him to start a food truck way before it was cool! Fast forward several years later, Keegan Climo finally makes that dream a reality by taking up the mantle of his grandfather, Joe Gagliardo, and opening a food truck in honor of Joe's old restaurant with the same name. Introducing Huggers Food Truck! After Joe passed away a couple years ago, Keegan took the pain of that loss and turned it into something beautiful by continuing on the legacy of his grandfather's restaurant that was a community staple. I really enjoyed hearing the passion behind all the family recipes and how Keegan is infusing his own spirit into everything they're doing. He had always wanted to start his own business and I think Huggers Food Truck was the perfect way for him to do it. I'm sure Joe is smiling down on him from heaven every day. Be sure to follow them on social media so you can see where they'll be parked next serving up deliciousness!
