  • Seed Saving Harvested and saved sunflower seeds from the best
    Seed Saving Harvested and saved sunflower seeds from the best of my homegrown sunflowers. They are drying in netted bags, originally packaging for store bought organic lemons. The netted bags allow for perfect aeration for the seeds to dry and not get moldy. I’ll keep a portion of the seeds for my garden in 2020, a portion will be saved for sharing with a local seed library and the rest will be for the birds over the winter. Thank you to  @mr .marcusnelson and  @emmanelson1  for the retro red clock that came with me from my kitchen in Los Angeles to

    Bunny Rabbit at a tea shop in Soho/NYC... Love the reusable glasses and hoping the straws aren’t plastic, which I thought had been banned in NYC. Did you know that plastics manufacturers have shirked at the extra penny it cost to make a paper straw. For large corporations, that equals hundreds of millions of dollars, but the cost to the marine environment, you can’t put a price on that.  @diannacat13   @plasticpollutes   #banplasticstraws   #refuseplasticstraws   #use   #stainlesssteelstraw   #instead

    Did you know that the Ayam Cemani rooster has such a distinct crow that it’s used as a foghorn by seafarers on their boats. It’s a totally black bird, inside and out. As opposed to Red Stars which lay an egg a day, Ayam Cemani lay on average an egg a week, then stop laying for 6 months and then resume laying. The Ayam Cemani has probably been around for a hundred years or so but has only come to the attention of chicken lovers since the late 1990’s.

    Good Morning from my garden! Checking on the corn (is it ready to harvest), artichokes, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, carrots, chard, kale, shishito and sweet peppers and then into the woods to forage for golden oysters and to check on what wild things the wildlife camera captured. So far, visitors have been deer, raccoons, squirrels, possums, foxes and coyotes  #growyourownfood   #eatforhealth   #ilovenature   #foraging   #mushroomforage   #wildthings   #nighttimevisitors   #thenookny

~ 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.
