    Twinkle Lights in the Trees One of my favorite things about summertime are fireflies. Every night, my garden, the field and the trees light up with fireflies ✨✨ I’m blissed out every time I see them. Love this image captured so beautifully by  @kirstenluce  for  @natgeo   #fireflies   #magical   #naturalwonder   #of   #nature   #fleetingbeauty   #summertime   #in   #the   #hudsonvalleyny 
  • Medicinal Bee Balm in my garden Did you know that
    Medicinal Bee Balm in my garden Did you know that bee balm is beneficial to pollinators? But did you also know that it’s anti-microbial and that it contains thymol, which can help prevent disease in hives, like the varroa mites. Let’s help the bees by planting these other medicinal herbs: thyme, oregano, echinacea, borage, chamomile, chives, nasturtium, lemon balm and elderberry. All the herbs listed support the immune system, are anti-microbial and are useful for respiratory issues.  @xercessociety   @zachbushmd   @greenamerica_   @omegainstitute   #priscillawoolworthphotography   #mygarden   #thenookny   #beebalm   #beneficial   #for   #pollinators   #and   #to   #us   #helloAlicia 
  • Dawn Chorus Did you know that birds like this goldfinch
    Dawn Chorus Did you know that birds, like this goldfinch, sing mostly at dawn because the cool, moist air of morning carries their songs and their meanings much farther In North America, the American robin is one the most audible with many warblers joining in later. In Europe, the European robin and other thrushes are equally active singers, with the latter the most recognizable singers around the world every morning. Do you know why birds create the dawn chorus? Either to claim territories, renew pair bonds, feel breeding urges and compete for mates.  #birdlove   #dawnchorus   #birdsong   #magicsong   #goldfinch   #americanrobin   #europeanrobin 
  • Feeling very lucky that I live in a healthy environment
    Feeling very lucky that I live in a healthy environment and that I’m able to grow life-sustaining organic foods. Growing my own food means I don’t have to wonder what is the story behind the potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, and blueberries. In the garden, looking forward to the potatoes being ready, along with the tomatoes, artichokes, peanuts and corn  #growyourownfood   #organic   #chemicalfree   #eatforhealth   #eatmostlyplants   #yourbody   #is   #selfhealing   #feeditwell   #loveyourbody

    Committed to Climate Action Congratulations to the ten year anniversary of the Omega Center for Sustainable Living’s (OCSL) state-of-the-art water reclamation and environmental innovation center Did you know...that the OCSL has reclaimed 45M gallons of wastewater, produced 510K kWh of energy via solar panels and saved 867K pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. I went on a tour of the OCSL a year ago, with the awesome Vandana Shiva, following a workshop she gave at the Omega Institute. It was fascinating, inspiring and exciting to see which this water filtration system, a living system that uses

  • The Forest made with cardboard by sculptor Eva Jospin Using
    The Forest made with cardboard by sculptor Eva Jospin Using material that ultimately originates from trees, the brown color and corrugated textures of cardboard perfectly imitates the common features found on trees, such as bark and winding branches. Her artworks almost make you feel lost in the woods and act as a clever reminder of the materials true origin and how we shouldn’t take it for granted. I originally saw her work in Paris at the Musée de la Chasse et la Nature in 2012. This beautiful museum is closed until October 2020 for renovations.  @musee_chasse_nature   #paris   #jewelofparis   #evajospin   #cardboard

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.
