Hippy Gourmet Newsletter - March'08
is around the corner
you smell the jasmine yet? Or maybe where you are the first colorful
tulips have popped up through the snow? It’s very true,
the long dark winter is coming to an end and soon we can all rejoice
in the rebirth of spring!
we look forward to most of course is the fresh, organic, locally
produced fruits and vegetables that initiates the season of abundance
coming our way. But we also look forward to the longer days, to
spending more time with family and friends and celebrating what
it means to slow down and enjoy each others company.
in the spirit of the lengthening days ahead of us, we hope that
everyone will take the time to reconnect and embrace the simplicity
of preparing home cooked meals together.
the way, now is the perfect time to sign up for your local
(community supported agriculture) program! Get to know your local
farmers and their families, and see where and how your daily sustenance
comes about! If you’re only one person, a couple, or a small
family, then why not share the weekly produce box with friends
and neighbors, because truly there’s no better way to usher
in spring, than to invite hospitality into our lives!
Earth Day - what are your plans? Here are some ideas...
It’s hard to imagine that each and every day we wake up
here on Earth and go about our business, actually forgetting we’re
really on a planet in the deep far reaches of space and time!
are times when we see a beautiful sunset, or see the shape of
the full moon with only a sliver of light, or view a photograph
taken of distant galaxies and nebulae that we begin to realize
the miracle of who we are and what this place we call home is
great thinker and inventor R. Buckminster Fuller (or Bucky as
he is fondly referred to) stated that we are all living on ‘spaceship
earth,’ believing that people on earth are really no different
than astronauts living on a space station. That in fact we must
be mindful of our resources, respecting and nurturing what is
renewable and doing all we can to reduce, re-use, recycle and
Bucky Fuller would have found the concept of one day a year to
celebrate planet Earth as being a bit misguided, as he would certainly
push for every day of every month of every year to live this way
– but as the eternal optimist he was, he certainly would
have been happy at least for each positive step in the right direction!
on earth is a miracle! We exist out of pure light, eat food that
is created from the sun and are sustained by this giant living
organism called mother Earth – so here’s a list of
fun things to do to make Earthday everyday!
