    This is way way back when I was living in Cannes/ south of France  #fbf  My sister Gigi was visiting and we must have gone for dinner in a charming port like Villefranche...It breaks my heart to see us holding this poor baby cub for a tourist photo By petting cubs, we are unknowingly participating in a business that results in a lifetime of misery for these animals and has a negative impact on conservation of these majestic animals in the wild.

  • Garden News My organic vegetable garden is slowly being put
    Garden News My organic vegetable garden is slowly being put to bed for the winter, one bed at a time (there are 27). Still managing to harvest tomatoes, string beans, chili peppers, basil, sage, thyme, parsley, chard, arugula and kale. I recently built a open compost area, next to the garden, using found branches and spare chicken wire to enclose it. I layered thinner branches along the outside, creating shelter or habitat for animals and insects. They also help in breaking down the compostable materials! I started the composting area with a layer of recycled (tape, ink and label free)

    It’s that time of year, near my nook, when I’ll be gathering kindling for both the firepit and the wood burning stove. The latter will only be used when absolutely necessary: thinking about air pollution, even way out in the wilds of the Hudson Valley.

    The old timers Gourds I dried last year, which in the early Spring 2018, I turned into birdhouses. I hung them up around my garden, in the trees by the field and on the side of my garage. Most of them had lodgers! They have since moved out and so these lichen and whatnot covered gourds will rest up over the winter alongside the young ones that were featured in a post yesterday. Can’t wait for next Spring!  #gourds   #birdhouses   #birds   #homes   #ilovebirds   #atthenook

~ 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.
