    Snowman by Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Did you know that snowmen sculptures are among humanity’s oldest forms of folk art, and that some of the greatest artists sculpted with snow, including Michelangelo. Encased in a glass-door freezer, Fischli uses a copper snowman as a base, and filled it with cooler liquid, and the box is filled with humidity and builds out over four or five days. The condensed water ices up and makes a snowman. Snowman is currently on view at MoMA, NYC  @themuseumofmodernart   #snowman   #snowmanart   #tistheseason

    Breaking News!!! Patagonia donates entire Trump tax cut to environmental groups that are fighting climate change. Patagonia is planning to take the $10 million it saved from 2017 corporate tax cuts, which had been reduced under the current administration from 35% to 21% - benefitting the oil and gas industry -at the expense of our planet. Instead of putting the money back into their business, CEO Rose Marcario is putting the money back into the planet, “our home planet needs it more than we do.” Thank you  @patagonia  and  #yvonchouinard  for this beautiful gesture towards bettering the planet& #x2764 ;& #xfe0f ;& #x2764 ;& #xfe0f ;

    Marvelous Shiitake Mushroom Culture In-A-Bag The Shiitake culture is in a Mycelium state and Mycelium makes it all happen. The Mycelium is the organism, working, consuming, decomposing. Once it’s had enough food, and it’s mature enough, the Mycelium sends out its “fruit” or fruiting bodies. These fruiting bodies are in fact the mushrooms you eat. The Mycelium makes the mushroom This block of Mycelium is currently in my basement and hopefully soon, I’ll be harvesting Shiitake mushrooms.

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival

~ Wendell Berry

Welcome to the Almanac Newsletter, an e-quarterly in which each issue celebrates innovations in Sustainable and Innovative Designs, Game-Changers who are creating and inspiring positive change, Eco Films that entertain and enlighten, Artists and Authors who are inspired by nature, Plant Based Recipes, a monthly Organic Gardening Calendar, as well as empowering readers to become informed consumers, by turning their purchasing power into a powerful tool for change. Attention is given as well to a Group or Organization that endeavors to arrest, contain, or reverse environmental damage and preserve our natural world for future generations.

As the public becomes increasingly aware of global warming and the unhealthy repercussions of heedless consumption of environmentally harmful products, people are more and more choosing to commit to greener, healthier lifestyles. We are all learning how to make conscious choices that reduce our use of natural resources and ideally serve to protect and sustain them.

Welcome also to my book titled LOLA, Lots of Love Always, which is aimed at young women but is a good read for everyone. It shows how to live a sustainable lifestyle and make healthy choices that are good for you and the planet at large. You are welcome to read the LOLA Blog, which has been archived on my site.
