Creating a world filled with rich and abundant soil.
Gardens break through cultural differences—from language barriers to generation gaps—we all have something to about when we are grow food together. Gardens not only help us connect with each other, they also help us connect with the environment teaching us to embrace the sow-plow cadence of life. Here on my blog I will take you into my garden where my family's journey towards sustainability began.
Are you ready to get started? I will be posting from my gardens but I will mix in my favorite recipes and family activities to complete the circle.
A community garden is more than a good idea among a select group of people; it is a community model for healthy living.
5 Tips to Get You Started
Like most things, homemade almond milk tastes exponentially better than store bought almond milk. Almonds are one of the only alkaline nuts, and an excellent source of vitamin E. They also have some protein so they make an excellent snack. I make this almond milk once a week and use it over cereal, in smoothies, and pretty much wherever milk is called for in recipes.
I love Easter. It is my favorite celebration because it ignites my inner fire to live another year with passion. One of my favorite projects to do with my children to prepare for Easter is to "start" our easter baskets with wheatgrass and dye our eggs with neutral pigments found in food. Celebrating Easter naturally is more sustainable particularly because 1.) it keeps traditional plastic filler grass out of landfills, 2.) you don't have to worry about synthetic food dyes getting into the eggs and 3.) it teaches children to respect "real" materials embracing the beauty in nature.
