    A few years ago, breakfast with Jane and Stanley, was delightful. Dr. Jane Goodall, animal rights icon and conservationist, continues to be an inspiration and role model in my life and my work. Did you know that she spends 300 days a year traveling throughput the world, giving speeches. At one of those, she thanked me for the work I do.

    Borage Do you know why I love this herb? It’s a bee magnet in the perfect shade of blue... The flowers are edible and can be dipped in whipped egg whites and then sugar, and used as the prettiest decoration on a birthday cake. The leaves make a delicious and refreshing flavoring for infused water or tea. There is more. Borago officinalis is a great companion plant for strawberries, squash and tomato plants. And when it’s finished flowering, and is done all together, it makes a great mulch while it decomposes, adding organic matter rich in mineral content to your

    This woman I have so much respect and a admiration for her. She gave up her legal practice to devote her time to just one client. The earth. She is featured as the gamechanger in the current issue of the Almanac Newsletter. Please read about what an awesome human being she was. (She passed away 2 months ago).

  • Its officially Summer! Great news this week New York State
    It’s officially Summer! Great news this week: New York State reaches a landmark climate bill to go for 100 percent carbon neutrality by mid century! The bill would make New York the second big state after California to pass one of the most ambitious climate bills in the nation. The agreement called Climate & Communities Protection Act (CCPA) calls for New York to eliminate 85% of its overall planet-warming emissions by 2050, while offsetting or capturing the other 15%. The deal mandates 35% of state energy funding go to low-income, polluted communities, but sets a goal of investing 40%. There
  • About to bloom in my garden in the Hudson Valley
    About to bloom in my garden in the Hudson Valley... Did you know that day lilies are edible? The shoots can be eaten raw in a salad, or made into pesto. The flower bud is eaten cooked in soup, or in an omelet. The flower can be eaten raw in a salad or cooked in soup. **With any wild harvested foods, try a little at first and integrate it slowly into your diet. Also, edible wild foraged greens such as chickweed, garlic mustard or yellow dock leaves should always be chopped when adding to a salad for best flavor Art
  • Its almost time to mow the fields Many farmers are
    It’s almost time to mow the fields Many farmers are delaying mowing until late June or July, to give the grass nesting birds, like sparrows, bobolinks, and meadowlarks, food and time to raise their young. Back in the day, when horses were used before tractors, their hoof sounds and movements warned wildlife ahead of the blade. Landowners who choose to leave their fields alone, usually do a rough cut at the end of August. Before and after, it serves as a mini grassland sanctuary, something that others might want to consider doing as well. (Image reposted from an earlier post);
  • Dear Natures Promise I applaud your commitment to providing organic
    Dear Nature’s Promise, I applaud your commitment to providing organic, gmo free, pesticide, fungicide and herbicide free products, such as the 4 red bell peppers I bought recently. As our planet is being overwhelmed by plastic waste and our own bodies are being polluted by microplastics, it would be wonderful if you would offer your vegetables free from plastic wrapping. I have a great idea for an alternative that would protect the produce from damage, from harvest to supermarket shelf. Thinking every day of solutions to problems, especially when it involves plastic pollution  #naturespromise   @hannafordmkts   #reduceplasticwaste   #plasticfree   #alternative   #packaging   #inspire 

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival

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.
