    Hornets Nest This one is in my kitchen, and has unexpectedly provided an overwintering home for a tribe of wasps. I think that one got into my house  #thenookny  this past fall, hibernated undetected through the winter, and are drowsily emerging as Spring is near. These ones don’t sting, so every morning, I carefully put them back outside  #stories   #from   #thenookny   #mylife   #hudsonvalley   #ny   #fromhollywoodtothehudsonvalley 
  • At a recent country auction I saw this fantastical mirror
    At a recent country auction, I saw this fantastical mirror, to be sold in a sale this past Saturday. I missed trying to purchase it because I got distracted picking up trash along the road near my house. Ultimately, the removal of plastic trash near the river was very satisfying and more so than buying something delightful I didn’t need  #naturecomesfirst   #naturefirst   #cleanuptrash   #plasticfreeriver   #lovetheplanet   #everyday

  • TrailBlazing Women of Kew Gardens London In 1896 women gardeners
    Trail-Blazing Women of Kew Gardens, London. In 1896, women gardeners were employed for the first time at Kew, and on equal pay, decades before women gained the vote. They were made to wear the same garb as male gardeners so as not to distract their colleagues. Their days were long, digging in the dirt from 6am to 6pm in the summer months. They were expected to spend their evenings attending lectures or studying in the library. The women eventually moved on to roles as head gardeners at other large gardens. Gertrude Jekyll said, “The love of gardening is a seed

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.
