    Protect Our Water Did you know that in 5 days, Toledoans are voting on a Lake Erie Bill of Rights? This is really amazing! Amazing and wonderful if it passes Organizers say the law would be the first Rights of Nature law in the United States to protect a whole ecosystem, though they compare it to imitatives around the world, including the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. How did this start? In 2014, Toledo residents could not use their water supply for three days. People couldn’t use city water to brush their teeth or take a shower or drink. Their

    What’s the smallest place you’ve ever lived in? Did you read the piece in Dwell, where they posted some wonderful responses from their online community. Here are a few, and read till the end! “We live in a 540sf shipping container conversion. Started as just two of us, but now we are welcoming a baby and have no plans to upsize.” And... “A well-designed, not-quite 200sf Studio. Huge by Hong Kong standards. And my neighbors lived in the same footprint with their two adult children. Puts things into perspective!” And... “A 20-foot diameter traditional Mongolian yurt. Coziest year and a

    This is exactly the current state of things where I am...Beautiful, crisp, clear, and cold. In the year and a half since I moved to this gorgeous part of the world (Hudson Valley/upstate NY), I’m experiencing anticipation on a whole new level: excitement for Spring, which is only 28 days away I can’t wait to see the flowering bulbs I planted last fall: daffodils, narcissus and alliums! Once they, and the grape hyacinths emerge, the trees then explode with blossoms, followed by the fiddlehead ferns, the morel mushrooms and ramps, in my forest garden. So much to look forward to

  • Homemade pancakes have never tasted better because I had them
    Homemade pancakes have never tasted better, because I had them with homemade maple syrup I tapped 4 mature sugar maple trees near my house recently! So exciting that the whole process worked out! The sap flows best when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32degrees Fahrenheit) and nighttime temperatures fall below freezing. The rising temperature creates pressure in the tree generating the sap flow. This is basically a transfer of the sap from the tree above the ground and the root system below the ground. ( So cool!!). The sap flows for 4-6 weeks. Did you know that maple syrup is

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.

    As a consumer, be informed about products that contain palm oil. You might not cook with it, but you would be surprised about how many food products contain palm oil, and many of them aren’t clearly labeled.
