Home on the Plains with JD – Episode 9

In this pandemic, hand-washing is more important than ever. The Foundry Distilling Co. in West Des Moines, Iowa, has converted its whiskey distillery to instead produce hand sanitizer. It has been receiving shipments of hand sanitizer and been bottling, labeling, and giving them away for the last several weeks.

During the pandemic, Urban Plains staff members are participating in “Home on the Plains,” a series in which we reflect on our experiences regarding quarantine from wherever each of us may be.

In these unprecedented times, we will be asking ourselves: How are we experiencing social distancing? What are we learning about ourselves? What are we learning about the communities around us?

Check out JD’s episode below.

At Urban Plains, we seek to produce content that celebrates the Midwestern experience. While our staff come from all over the United States, we’ve each made a home in the rolling plains and friendly cities that make up this unique region of the country. In the coming weeks, we hope to be a place to find peace of mind during this unprecedented time. We will continue to share the stories, videos, podcasts, photos, and other content that we know you have an appetite for. Wishing good health to you all.

– UP Staff
