Rio Thomas' Profile
Rio Thomas was born loving food. She's grown much of her family's food for over 30 years, and worked on local organic farms for over 15 years. During that time she developed and directed a local gleaning effort, Small Potatoes Gleaning Project, which continues today as a project of the Bellingham Food Bank. The early inspiration for Season’s Gleanings came while making thank you cards for farmers and volunteers involved in the project. The first thank you card, made for this purpose, is still available today.
Season’s Gleanings greeting cards continue to be inspired by the vibrant diversity of crops that grow in Whatcom county in northwest Washington state. Designs are created using fruits, vegetables, and other gathered plants from forest edge to river bank, then photographed to make cards that bring delight to young and old, for any occasion, all year round…
