"Crunchy? Granola? What the heck are these people talking about?!"
Welcome to Crunchy Folks - A Natural Living Support thread. In case you're wondering, "crunchy" and "granola" are slang terms used to describe people who strive to live more naturally or somewhere outside the mainstream. If you're a little crunchy or a lot, come join the discussion! Not crunchy? That's okay too! Just be respectful and feel free to ask questions!
Some common topics here include gardening, breastfeeding, recycling, DIY, sewing, natural cleaning products, pregnancy, alternative education, organic cooking, attachment parenting, going green, human rights, etc.
