I had a wee peek at the Mullumbimby community gardens, this is the 'Food for All' garden where food is grown by volunteers for the community to pick. These gardens are so productive, it's like walking the isles of a green grocer, but instead of picking food off a shelf, you pick it off the plant. Amazing! Fresh food from the earth is a gift we should all be able to share and enjoy irrespective of where we live and how much we earn 🌱🥕🍅🍋
Thanks for showing me this beautiful place @sandy_sansdoute ❤

Meet Katie Boeh of @foxandbearurbanfarm on Sauvie Island just north of Portland. Katie has been farming for a while but this is her first year doing it full time. Katie likes to grow unusual varieties like this Thai Frog Egg Eggplants. Swipe left to see the Katie with her Tom Thumb lettuce, Katie harvesting Silver Slicer cucumbers, shishito peppers, and some beautiful red corn overlooking a new bed  of spigarello. 🥗
You can find her produce at @rubinetteproduce or perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to get her CSA next year.  At least check out her IG account, her photos are so good! 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Small scale farmers usually grow a wide variety of veggies, and that biodiversity is a huge asset in the face of climate change. #thefutureoffood 🙏🏽

"When you are eating conventionally grown foods, laced with pesticides grown in nutritionally poor and dying soils, bred and artificially fed for size, water content for weight, robustness for global travel and picked unripe to survive the journey, is it any wonder these foods don’t taste that great? It’s no wonder we want to cook or process the little remaining vitality out of them and add fats, sugar, salt, and spices to give us any taste satisfaction. But we aren’t getting any real nutritional satisfaction either.⠀
When you eat foods, particularly homegrown, in well-built soils, free of poisonous influences, you taste the difference. You feel the difference inside of you if you pay attention. When you discover and experience this for yourself and realize that not only are you depriving your taste buds of any real adventure, but your body and brain of real nutrition too, you stop compromising on quality.⠀
We pump foods up on water for weight with artificial fertilizer salts for commerce...for profit...not for health. As Geoff Lawton said, “If our food was valued by its refractive index and not by weight, how we all grew it would change very quickly across the planet.” Such practices don’t feed the soil so they can’t feed your plants, which in turn can’t feed you. How much longer will you deprive yourself of high-quality nutrition? How much do you think you are worth it?" ⠀

Cream of wild chanterelle soup. I decided to make this after finding several flushes of violet chanterelles/pig's ears and a few days of drizzly soup weather. 
I was planning on making bear pelmeni, but my first try at grain-free dumpling dough was kind of a disaster, so I just served the smoked black bear I was going to use as filling and fried some potatoes.

I'm gonna figure out the pelmeni though.

My program purchased 5 Garden Towers for use by the Health Clinic for the diabetes, prenatal, home care, and daycare programs !

I am excited to share that our Towers have been producing a small harvest! As it is our first year, it was fun to experiment by planting different herbs, vegetables, and squash with community members from tall to small and all walks of life!

I’m not showing any mercy when tearing these morning glories out. Like I said, those vines will sneak up onto our vegetables we planted.  Morning glories are the mean girls of the garden & I’m standing up to them for all of the vegetables. Always stand up for the underdogs. #rezlife #brightsideofrez #indiancountry #gardening #foodsovereignty #owensvalley
Harvesting SWEET Corn 🌽🌽🌽🌽 Often so abused, disrespected, modified, gentrified.. it's not just a plant folks. It's culture, tradition, history! I was going to write a long post about how it's a mirror to human society then I read this... "When Europeans first came to the Americas, they were taught about corn by the Indians. Native American Indians gave the Europeans corn seed and taught them how to grow corn. Then the Europeans killed them all and begin eating corn at Thanksgiving as an American tradition. - 'Mercia"

Biggest mahalo to @maoorganicfarms for hosting us today! It was such a pleasure to spend the day learning from everyone who took the time to answer our questions and share their personal stories! 
We thought we had the weeding game down, but you showed us today how much harder it is to weed around delicate baby crops especially when we weren’t quite sure which leaves were crops and which were weeds 😳🌱😂 it was a great learning experience! 
We were joined today by our kūkuluhou boys along with our summer interns, Farm Managers and education team! Maʻo has so many programs running there was something to be learned by us all. 
We ended the day planting ʻulu trees together! There is something really special and satisfying about planting food. Every time we drive through the Maʻo gates we will each count the rows and columns looking for the tree we planted and check to see how it’s growing. 🙏🏽♥️🙌🏽 Big mahalo from all of us to all of you at @maoorganicfarms and especially to everyone who took the time to share and connect with us today. We always love the days when we have a huakaʻi to one of our fellow ʻāina organizations! .

My freedom lifestyle is a trade off. Instead of basic luxuries, I live in a tiny structure with one lightbulb and a usb outlet to charge my phone. Instead of expensive food, I forage as much of it as I can. Here are 7 avocados I wild foraged here on the island of Hawaii (which would have cost me almost $20) that's a lot of calories for free. I try to do this as much as I can, which keeps the money I make safe and untouched so I can save as much as possible. I make sacrifices that not everyone is willing to make, so that I may live a life of freedom, because the system we live under is not built to provide you freedom, it is built to suck money from you.

This is one way that I practice sovereignty. 
Every little bit counts. I don't want things, I want to Live Beautifully because that's what life is for. What is your relationship to money? How do you save money? Comment below!

From the “The Southern History They Never Teach Us” file:
“... a historical marker was erected in Maxton, North Carolina, to commemorate an event that occurred sixty years ago, when the Ku Klux Klan tried to rally in the heart of Lumbee Indian territory. The Klansmen were run out of town, and the 1958 event made the national news, including in TheNew York Times and Life magazine. The conflict became known as “The Battle of Hayes Pond.” The Lumbee tribe of North Carolina has fought long and hard for tribal recognition and respect. With 55,000 members, it’s the largest tribe east of the Mississippi and the ninth largest in the nation. But while the tribe was recognized by the state of North Carolina in 1885, the federal government dragged its feet on official recognition until 1956, and even then stopping shortof full recognition.

In 1956, Ku Klux Klan activities in the area had already been ratcheting up in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Educationmandating the desegregation of schools. After the recognition of the Lumbee in North Carolina, Ku Klux Klan wizard James W. “Catfish” Cole launched a campaign of terror against the tribe, questioning its indigenous status and telling the Greensboro Daily News, “There’s about 30,000 half-breeds up in Robeson County and we are going to have some cross burnings and scare them up.” Via The Progressive (Pictured: Lumbee men Simon Oxedine and Charlie Warriax, both veterans, with captured KKK flag from @life)

Just did an interview with a former intern at Organic Alberta on food security in Edmonton. One of my great joys in life is seeing where young people go and the paths they take. We talked about a former apprentice making connections to get local food into the Mustard Seed and about my Young Agrarians work to grow new farmers. We talked about access to cultural and ecological appropriate food and communities on the margins. We talked about how farms have evolved to grow commodities rather than food and how this has degraded the rural social fabric. And how farmers don’t supply their own local rural grocery stores. We have so much work to do but there’s so much promise in these smart young people to take on these challenges and make it happen! #yeg #alberta #foodsecurity #foodsovereignty #youngfarmers #youngagrarians #foodactivist #communitybuilding @farms.mountains.and.happiness @mustardseedyeg @redtail_farms @youngagrarians

Today’s reminder: this part of garden does seem overwhelming. When I take a break, it doesn’t look like I did much but I keep reminding myself, “Every little bit I do now will make a difference in the future.” Oh and these morning glories are pretty but not my friend. #keepitup #rezlife #brightsideofrez #indiancountry #foodsovereignty

This morning we spoke at the 5th Annual Partnership in Community Health Symposium in the Navajo Nation Museum located in Window Rock, Arizona. This years two day symposium is focused on Disseminating Lessons on Community Outreach and Food Sovereignty.

We had expressed our appreciation to the Community Health Representatives for they do a lot in our communities, especially for our elders. They bring food and make sure our elders are well taken care of. I also challenged our younger generation to visit home more, to check up on their parents/grandparents. We also talked about the hardships in our communities and how we can turn that around through our way of life teachings. Food sovereignty was also the highlight of the day, because we are working towards getting certified to grow our own foods and to provide jobs for our farmers. 
We appreciate the work COPE and Dr. Sonya Shin does for the surrounding communities and services  for our people. Thank you for the invitation and we hope that everyone will come out to enjoy the presentations you all have put together. 
Ahe’hee

Chickens living free! Free of cages, free of bland tasteless food, free to explore and forage, free to accept the love from hard working farmers. We live in the “Land of the Free” why are our animals pent up in factory farms? This is the way I chose to raise my animals and how I personally chose to live. We have the right to chose where we live, how we eat, how we feed our families......This is natural, clean, healthy, sustainable and magnificent in so many ways!!! My life is so full, my cup overflowing, my love seeping out of my pores to give.....My animals and people in my life benefit from those of us that stand up for freedom!  #freedom #foodsovereignty #righttochoose #freedomchickens #orchards #permaculture #natural #love #mindful #conscience #freeofcages #nochickenjail

This bountiful harvest was gifted to the Food & Trees office by Bonwelong Primary School in Tembisa, following a site-visit there today. In May @generalelectric funded the establishment of a long term food garden at the school. FTFA have assisted with training and resources to start growing food naturally. Since then, the school has benefitted from numerous harvests. They are incredibly proud of their hard work- and we are too! #foodandtreesforafrica #growyourgreens #naturalfarming #foodsecurity #schoolnutrition

Nettle pesto.
•
Ayurveda and Kalari are all about practicality. Whatever plants are growing near you are the ones you need.
•
I have thousands of nettle in my backyard. So I pesto-ed them this morning 😁🌱👌🏻
•
In Ayurveda, Nettles are a superfood and rejuvenate, especially good for the adrenals and kidneys.
•
They are generally cooling to our systems and help balance Pitta/Kapha doshas(if you’re not sure of what that means Google Ayurveda + Dosha Test to get a rough idea of which Dosha you are...or visit an Ayurvedic Dr. We have lovely Dr. Kumar and many others in Adelaide!)
•
“Nettle is considered a superfood, because it's a great source of vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, C, D and K, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, iron and sulphur. Its has sedative and nervine properties, aiming in the good functioning and strengthening of the nervous system.  Use a compress of nettles to relieve arthritis and muscular pain, as well as sciatica.” Purusha Ayurveda
•
Collect nettles with gloves and some scissors! Blanch in boiling water (removes stingers), then rinse in cold water. Blend up with seeds or nuts (I used sunflower seeds), olive oil, salt and pepper, (+ lemon or garlic to taste).
•
Nettle = Good.

Kunjungan Para Caver aka Penelusur Gua
°
11 Agustus lalu kami kedatangan tamu dari Tasikmalaya yang ingin singgah sebentar di Prambanan, mereka adalah para penelusur gua. Konon di Indonesia sebagian besar gua berada pada bentang lahan karst yang memiliki peran penting dalam tata hidrologi wilayah di sekitarnya. Di Kabupaten Tasikmalaya sendiri, banyak petani yang sangat bergantung pada karst karena peranannya dalam memenuhi kebutuhan air untuk lahan persawahan, perkebunan, maupun peternakan. Sehingga secara tidak langsung, karst memiliki peranan penting dalam ketahanan pangan di daerah sekitarnya.
°
Matur suwun atas kunjungan singkatnya, kang @fajar_semoga, teteh @abie_sincerely & dedek Rakha. Mari kita sama-sama melestarikan karst Indonesia untuk ketahanan pangan! 💪💪💪

Newest farm addition: Cuckoo Marans! 
A beautiful dual purpose breed that lay the beautiful very dark chocolate brown eggs. For about two years now I’ve wanted them in my lineup, so I couldn’t help myself when I saw them at the local feed store yesterday. 
Two things I look for when selecting a breed of chicken to add to my flocks are color of eggs they lay and if they are dual purpose, meaning they’re good for egg laying and as meat birds. 
We’re currently raising 14 broiler chickens we hatched out on farm, which is something that I rarely see done in chicken meat production. It took me two years to build my line for egg to freezer chicken meat, and I’m very proud that the hard work and planning is finally paying off! 
I have a Buff Orpington rooster I’m raising with the broilers who will become my new head rooster, and I plan to eventually breed him with these Cuckoo Marans (and a few other breeds I have) for more rounds of 100% farm raised meat. 
Maybe one day I’ll even have enough birds to sell the best damn chicken meat from the happiest damn chickens you’ll ever eat in your whole life.

Meet Maryalice Snider, Program Director of the Foster Grandparents of the Wyoming Rockies Program (FGWR)! FLV is proud to share our headquarters with such amazing organization and loves working alongside Foster Grandparents.
.
.
The excitement of living in a place synonymous with freedom and independence was what drew Maryalice to Wyoming in 1981. The pace of life, wide open spaces, endless skies and friendly people were what eventually helped her form roots. Volunteering gave her adult life an extra sense of purpose, so in 2013 when a position with the Foster Grandparents Program became available, she applied. In the fall of 2015, Maryalice became Program Director of FGWR under its new sponsorship with ARI.
.
.
Maryalice speaks very highly of FGWR, and says that “They are my superheroes and inspire me every day so that I do my best to find joy in the nuts and bolts of managing a Federal Service Program. Value and meaning has reinvented itself in my life these past 5 years as I watch value and meaning come back into the lives of our volunteers.”
.
.
In Maryalice’s spare time, she loves cooking, playing in the mountains, and learning about new cultures, preferably with her family and dog Ivy by her side.
.
.
Thank you for being so passionate about the work you do Maryalice!

“”Real Food comes from Mother Nature it’s the blueprint for our health. Fake Food is Processed - refined - made by food scientists in lab coats, manipulating our brains into craving these food like products which is a viscous cycle to break out of.
——
Sure, eating these foods on the right will do no immediate harm to our bodies. Everyone has a choice how they fuel their body, I’m not here to judge that.
——
I find it astonishing some children & young adults do not recognise Wholefoods but yet recognise a pack of Snickers or Pringles. Yet, have no idea how it reached them in the first place which loses the connection to food.””

De los peores malestares que podemos padecer son los que afectan nuestras vías respiratorias. En el Ungüento Tópico Asili, se encuentran los beneficios anti-inflamatorios y descongestionantes que nos brindan los extractos naturales del Eucalipto, Romero y Menta, más el toque de nuestro Vaporub natural que permite quitar la incomodidad de los piquetes de insectos.

A big thank you to @lendandtend for running an excellent workshop at the weekend. Enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Inspiring a new generation of garden tenders. Such exciting work, and all the more valuable for people in a city! Still some spaces on their next one this Saturday at 12am... come try your hand and green your fingers. Check their feed for more info. Ph @lendandtend #beautifulallotment #growers #inspire

"A story of biochar…
Biochar is a charcoal like substance that has basically gone a step further. While charcoal can usually still be burned as a fuel, biochar, if done properly, will have all of the remaining volatile oils and combustible carbon structures removed from its mass. This is done by a process known as pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is the baking of biomass in an oven-like structure with little to no oxygen. We do this on the farm with an old 44 gallon drum that has breathing holes cut around its base and sitting on fire resistant blocks for better air flow. Once loaded in the base with combustibles and burning well…(we use the wood of fallen or dead trees and waste bamboo pieces)...you place the biomass to be turned into biochar in an inner bin, place that in the larger barrel, and fill around and over the top of that with more wood. With the lid on this inner bin, you will create an oven for the biomass inside that gets little oxygen. Once complete you should be left with a mat black dull biomass. If not quite done it may still exhibit the colouration of combustible material and the sheen of volatile oils. Once the burn is complete, you crush up the biomass and then sieve it through finer gradations until you have a fine powder. Keep crushing and sieving until it is all fine grounds. This makes an excellent soil amendment because the fine carbon structure provides habitat for untold trillions of micro-organisms beneficial to the life of your soil. We will be using this in our nursery potting mix for our vegetable and tree seedlings, but you could just as well add it to compost or throw it over your garden bed. Building a rich soil is the foundation for growing healthy and nutritious food. Give it your utmost attention and you will be rewarded with lush healthy growth, great tasting mineral rich food, and vital health." Thanks @zaytunafarm for this incredible walk-through!
