Community treats: Take a handful
Happy Halloween to those who celebrated it, happy October 31 to those who didn't, and happy Día de los Muertos to those who will be remembering their loved ones during a sacred time. The fall has been full of community treats—from events to podcasts to articles—and we’re full of (almond) joy to share them with you.

With great affection, 
Your Uncommon community team
