Publisher’s Note

Ujima Masthead Orange

Where has the year gone? We are in November with the holidays right around the corner. The cooler weather is also bringing in the holiday feel as well. With the coming holiday season comes the talk about the new year. I’m not there quite yet, but I hear a lot of talk and chatter about family gatherings, food, goals for new year and more.

Our feature story for the month will be  Mikaila Ulmer, owner of BeeSweet Lemonade. She is a young entrepreneur that is making a name for herself as she educates the community about the importance of bees and her tasty lemonade that is being sold around Austin, Texas and beyond. Her story coming soon. Look for the community stories, health and our food stories.
