In honor of Earth Day, I think it would be fun to share some Earth friendly tips on how to better take care of our planet. Here you can listen to my interview with Kat Powers on Palestine’s KYYK radio station where we talk sustainability and what each of us can do at home to help to help heal the Earth. Some of the things we talked about are how the waterways are tied to the oceans and how what we do impacts the rest of the world (one garbage truck full of plastics into the ocean every 60 seconds), how to start the conversations with people in your community about reducing plastic usage and getting more access to recycling and rewarding environmentally responsible companies with our patronage.

Some of the things I am doing personally are refusing plastic straws at restaurant, switching to bar soaps and shampoos, switching to reusable grocery and produce bags, trying to replace plastic products with natural materials, and picking up garbage (we call it MOOP, or matter out of place) on roads, sidewalks and playgrounds with my children. They love to be Eco Superheroes!

What are some of the things you’re doing at home to be Earth positive? Let us know in the comments section.

Gardening with the flow

Permaculture, in it's simplest form, is about working with the flow of nature. If you think about the flow of energy across a landscape, you can see patterns. Water flows downhill and carries nutrients with it. The practice of permaculture can be thought of in terms...

News from the hen house

  It took six months but we've finally got eggs! We also have a rooster. Surprise!   When we went to our local feed store, we picked out five (female, or so we thought) chicks; one for each of us to name. We got a variety of breeds so we could observe the differences...
