Taproot Magazine - Fangirl love and a Giveaway

I wish I had the time to wax poetic about my love for this magazine, but I have many things still to do leaving for the airport.

I first found out about Taproot from the editor's blog after it had been out for a year. It sounded great, so I ordered all four back issues. Halfway through the first one, I knew I would be a subscriber. I'm going to copy-paste a bit of their description and then link to the rest of the text:

Taproot ::
1. the large single root of plants such as dandelion, which grows vertically downward and bears small lateral roots
2. a quarterly magazine celebrating food, farm, family and craft through writing, photography and the arts, both fine and domestic.
Taproot is...
a collection of curated stories written by and for people living fully and digging deeper; people who are interested in deepening their connections to their families, communities, and themselves as they strive to live locally and closer to the ground.
Taproot is...
inclusive of all families striving to dig deeper, in the ways that manifests in our days, and in the many ways we define family. From rural homesteading to urban gardening, to homeschooling and community living. From family to family, our days may look very different from one another’s. At taproot, we’re striving to find the connecting thread that binds us together. Read the rest at their site.

At the beginning of the year, our international courier service decided, without giving notice, that they were not going to deliver any more magazines. Without further ado, they trashed everything they recieved without sending it on or back. I contacted Taproot, and they kindly re-sent me the missing issues  (free of charge. Yes, they are awesome). However, I had miscounted and now have an extra copy of the issue Bread.

I would like to pass it on to someone who is interested in seeing what Taproot is about. If that someone is you, please leave a comment to that effect below, and I'll mail it to you. :P

I'll screen comments.
