And Off We Go

This morning was bittersweet. I just finished Animal. Vegetable. Mineral. by Barbara Kingsolver. I've been listening to the 11 CDs over the course of the past 2 weeks, with no drive time interruption from music or even NPR.

I fell obsessed with the information.

I started and titled this blog before starting the book, only knowing that I wanted to write about eating seasonally...

But now I have an idea.

I'm going to use this blog to take you through a completely NOVICE start to a gardening, eating locally, thinking organically, and just igniting a general consciousness about the environment.

We each have such a significant impact on the earth and most of us, myself included, don't know how to make personal changes that will in fact make a big difference.

I'll be doing the learning and sharing it with you.

I'll try to give you the best summary of information that I can pull together.

All I ask is that you forgive any mistakes I make along the way, I promise to always correct any oversights I might make in my learning process.

I want you to join me in an education process. I'll be writing with an Ohio frame of mind, but I'll try to include information that can be used globally. And if you read something and feel you can update my information with tips specific to your region or as a correction to something I have said, your contributions will be welcome.

Let's get together and learn to do everything in our personal power to change the impact that we have on the earth.

"The things you purchase are your way of weighing in on how the world gets used." - Barbara Kingsolver.

Who's ready to make change with me???
