First steps -- to a future of growing food...
as a nomad in a new country and climate.
Wow! I watched almost every session of the Superfood Garden Summit this last weekend of July. It ignited a fire within me.
I wrote down several gold nuggets to share. But first let me share with you that the first spark has taken. I have started growing with what I have available.
Over a decade ago I did turn my back lawn into a wonderful no-dig vegetable garden. Now, I’m an itinerant worker living in my Toyota Hiace campervan, Hwyl, between assignments.
I learned, this weekend that:
We need to transform our Eco-anxiety into Eco-abundance.
Sustainability is nature’s symphony where all are honoured and respected
Humans are nature too
Avoiding the sun is as deadly as smoking
Forest bathing - just two hours for two days - results in a fifty percent increase in our natural killer cells that fight infection and gobble up cancer cells - plant more trees for earth’s sake!
Eating more leafy greens adds eleven more dementia free years to your life - sprouts are the fastest pathway
Start with what you can, even if that is just to collect flower seeds and scatter them or organize a Nature Scavenger Hunt for your next party or event just to bring others into awareness of nature.
We hold the power of the future of seeds in our hands
You harvest what you sow
You sow what you buy
What you buy is your vote
Together our votes shape the future.
Every purchase counts.
Check that the seeds you buy are not GMO (genetically modified organism) or BE(Bio engineered). They will always be marked, by law, even though food does not need to state that GM ingredients were used.
Live well and find the happy,
