A Magical May, Filled with Blooming Beauty!
All around us from the local farm stands in middle Tennessee to the glittered streets of large and busy cities~~
"Green" is the word of the year. Let's keep the thought that it is here
There are many ways we, as individuals can make a difference in the overall outcome. Most everything we do depends on the numbers to reap a good ending. So it stands to reason the more people we have doing more things to reverse the damage of negative habits, the more and better results we will see.
Here is a list of some very important steps any of us can pick from...all or one is better than none.
Adopt A No Chemical Lifestyle
Plant A Garden
4. Americans sure love their tomatoes, consuming 19 pounds per person per yearand that's not counting the tomatoes used to whip up sauce and ketchup. In fact, the United States is second only to Italy in its consumption of tomatoes per capita.
5. One third of all garden plants sold in the United States are tomatoes, according to the Seed Savers Exchange.
Lawns Can Be Beautiful and Edible
Do Something Good For Your Heart
8. Consider starting a Community garden in your neighborhood if you simply can't make space in your own yard. It's a wonderful way to spread the word, encourage involvement, and have plenty of help to keep things working on schedule. Community gardening is awesome for children, teaching the importance of good and healthy food and at the same time respect for the earth's resources and their fellow man.
The gardens at Sage Hill Farms are beautiful and full of abundance. We credit this to a no chemical practice, composted soil, cover cropping, and insect participation. Do you know that 40% of what we eat is pollinated by honey-bees?

~Looking for a special book that you can keep by your side and know you can always find a passage to inspire your day? Rebecca Simmons would no doubt say the Bible...and I agree. But Rebecca has written a book (actually more than one). The one I have adopted as my own reminder of just how simple everyday can be in our choices is "Pump Up The Power - Get The Life You Want." Check out Rebecca's website and do yourself a favor, add her books to your reading list. http://www.DPC-Books.com
~Remember that our space is constantly energized by the vibes we release. The law of nature is at work all the time, reflecting back to us, our thoughts and feelings. If we are to live in harmony with ourselves and those whom we interact with daily, we must release the kind of energy that expresses the life we choose.
The greater the understanding and acceptance of our surroundings, the greater the harmony.
