    Spooky looking still from the film Fantastic Fungi, which shows magical mycelium connecting and communicating with tree roots underground. Mushrooms are the new superheroes! The film is fascinating, entertaining, with gorgeous photography. It’s probably playing in a theater near you. Swipe left to see a photo I took of the director Louie Schwartzberg, a few years ago in Los Angeles, and of him with master mycologist Paul Stamets. Congratulations  @louieschwartzberg  for this beautiful film Fantastic Fungi is the eco film recommended in the current issue of the Almanac Newsletter  @fantasticfungi   #louieschwartzberg   #paulstamets   #mushrooms   #are   #superheroes

    Friends in Los Angeles Hoping that you and your loved ones are all safe. Hoping as well that each of you has a respirator mask labeled N95 or N100, which will provide some protection. They filter out fine particles. Breathing in smoke from these fires is harmful to your health.

  • Great News! Good people are collecting pine cones in New
    Great News! Good people are collecting pine cones in New Mexico, Colorado, South Dakota and other places in western United States, to help reforest fire ravaged forests. Only the healthiest of cones will do, which have no curves, no sap, and no insect bore holes. The cones will be dried, their seeds cleaned, sorted and grown into seedlings ready to be planted. Catastrophic elements like wildfire and drought are being exacerbated by climate change and native tree species with healthy seed producing cones are getting harder to find because their environments are getting destroyed.  #goodpeople   #helping   #toheal   #forests   #ourchildrens   #future 

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

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.
