  • Since billions of the dreaded microplastics have been found in
    Since billions of the dreaded microplastics have been found in those silken tea bags (which are actually made of plastic), a great and much healthier alternative is using loose tea. Featured here is a glass jar where I store my organic black tea. When I make a cup of tea, I scoop up a spoonful in either of these mesh strainers and soak them in a cup or travel mug. Refuse gourmet tea bags. Did you know that every time you sip a cup of gourmet tea made with “silk” tea bags, you could be swallowing billions of plastic particles.
  • The Cutest Eastern Screech Owl Did you know that pairs
    The Cutest Eastern Screech Owl Did you know that pairs are usually monogamous and remain together for life. Some males, however, will mate with two different females. The second female may evict the first female, lay her own eggs in the nest, and incubate both clutches.  #easternscreechowl   #owl   #owlnews   #priscillawoolworthphotography

  • The Last Threshing These are the last runner and string
    The Last Threshing These are the last runner and string beans seeds I’ll be saving this season. Threshing is a process where you loosen the seed from its pod. This works really well with plants that have really small seeds like arugula, poppies and purslane, for example. Soon, I’ll be offering organic seeds from my garden in my online store! I’ll let you know when it launches. I’ll also give a portion of my seeds to a local seed library  #PWstore +Studio  #savingseeds   #organicallygrown   #growyourownfood   #seedlibrary

    This morning, I looked over the fog covered field and was overwhelmed by how beautiful it was, full of the fading colors of yellow goldenrod and purple asters. I went for a walk and came back with witch hazel, oyster mushrooms and hickory nuts in the woods near my house, hazelnuts from the hedge and peanuts from my garden.  #fadedbeauty   #foggymorning   #witchhazel   #oystermushrooms   #hickorynut   #pignut   #hazelnut   #peanut   #acorn   #spendtimeinnature

The last sunflower will join the others on the roof of my garden shed: food for migrating birds or for those that live locally and are storing up for the coming winter.

    It’s time to read the October Garden chore list! You can see here that I’ve taken the drying of seeds to a whole new level. No surface is spared in my house when it’s seed drying time. For west coast gardeners, there is lots to plant and do this month. For gardeners in the northeast, there isn’t as much planting but more about other things. Find out all about it on my site!

  • The Unexpected Foursome Two kinds of Gourds tomatoes and potatoes
    The Unexpected Foursome Two kinds of Gourds, tomatoes, and potatoes were compost imposters! They all thrived in the compost pile, which I started last summer/2018. I love composting even more now that it produces free vegetables and gourds  #composting   #compostingrocks   #plantbased   #organic   #gmofree   #reduceswaste

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.
