    I’m dedicating this post to my beloved friend Phyllis Wyeth, Rest In Peace my dear friend. Swipe left to see her in a portrait by her husband, artist Jamie Wyeth. Wishing that I could tell Phyllis about the many sugar maple trees I just discovered I have in the woods by my nook in the Hudson Valley. I learned this very exciting news from agroecologist Conrad Vispo and his wife Claudia, an ethnobotanist, who made a site visit yesterday. Looking forward to learning more about their work regarding what habitats can farmland provide for native species and, in turn, what

    This market/shop/stand/store in Morocco is just beautiful. I would love my kitchen to look like this! Large glass jars full of goodness, buckets of spices, baskets full of deliciousness and bundles of dried herbs and flowers hung overhead. Wait, I just spotted some dried gourds too!

  • Girl with Phragmite Since last year when I moved to
    Girl with Phragmite Since last year, when I moved to the Hudson Valley, I’ve been admiring this feathery grass that grows in large stands along the roads. It’s quite beautiful, especially in the winter, when the feathery seed heads turn into snowy plumes. Swipe left to see a stand of the weed. Recently, I found out that it’s called Reed grass, aka phragmites, which are large perennial grasses, that are highly invasive. They outcompete native vegetation and lower the local plant biodiversity. They form dense thickets that are unsuitable habitat for native fauna. Two of the most effective methods of

    There's not enough forest anymore to make everything new, new, new.

    In case you still have your Christmas treeHere are a few cool ways to recycle your tree, instead of putting it in a plastic bag where it ends up in a landfill. Did you know that your tree can shore up sand dunes, feed goats or be turned into mulch? The goats take just a day or two to to eat the trees, even the bark. A 14 foot tree can be stripped in 3 hours by goats! Beachside towns have been using Christmas trees for years, to rebuild sand dunes. Another great option: The department of sanitation can collect

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.
