  • Keeping it Wild in my garden What would the world
    Keeping it Wild ~in my garden~ What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left, O let them be left, wildness and wet; Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet. -Gerald Manley Hopkins Excerpted from a good read in the NY Times “To Nature Nature Neglect Your Lawn by Margaret Renkl. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/opinion/nature-lawns-environment.html By leaving pesticides (poisons) out of our gardens, we are helping protect bees, butterflies, frogs, toads, salamanders and songbirds, all essential to balancing the ecosystem we depend on Lots more information can be found on my site, including best flowers

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 You are welcome to read the LOLA Blog, which has been archived on my site.
