Winter 2019/20 Almanac

Welcome to the Winter Issue 2019-2020!

My inspiration centers on all of us living a life that is beneficial to the Earth, our communities, and ourselves, including all animals and plants. My work continues to focus on concepts that apply to all beings, food, water, waste, clean energy, nature, and our health and well-being. In my own life, I continue to learn how to live a simpler and more conscious life, wasting less, and working for something I believe in.

Before I describe what is featured in this issue, I have to tell you that I launched my new online store this past month where I’m offering my favorite home and lifestyle goods. Please stop in for a visit and follow me on Instagram, where I’ll be posting new products when they are added to my store.

In this issue, you will learn about several fantastic resources from a Tool Lending Library, to Eco Restoration Camps and Refill Stores.

The Eco Garden Calendar is finishing its run, and the month of December’s will be the last one. I’m working on a garden calendar book and plans are afoot to launch it next Spring!!

Learn about Five Foods that are made from trash and why you may need to switch your tea and why people are collecting pinecones.

The Artist featured in this issue is extraordinary and inspiring. You may have seen his work but do you know why he makes it?

Find out why the Gamechanger changed his career and became an ecologist. What is Copenhill? An innovative and multi-purpose design that you have to check out!

I haven’t seen the feature length Film I recommend this month but I can’t wait to see it. It’s a story that I hope one day will no longer need to be told. I also feature a short Documentary about a community coming together to do the right thing.

The two recipes I share are favorites of mine and hope that they become yours as well. They are both plant based and could be vegan with the omission of butter.

In this issue, I’m going wild about books and recommending six! I hope there will be one that you discover for yourself or for a child.

I attended a Farming with Nature event which I really enjoyed and share a few things that I learned, really the best of, as there was so much information shared.

The Cabinet of Green Curiosities has four new additions, each one really special and fascinating. All the stories in this section feature things that are made with natural materials or are found in nature.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday and all the best for 2020!
