Mandala Garden World

We just left New York where we spent two weeks at Root ‘n Roost Farm in White Sulphur Springs NY, just 10 miles from the site of the original Woodstock festival. All hail the iconic milieu of aged hippies and  summer camps, vacationing Hassids and tie-dyed peace sign schwag. It is beautiful country though with great stands […]

How To: Potato Towers of Power

Last week, we had the pleasure of working at Lady Liberty Farm in upstate New York. It’s a gorgeous property spanning 120 acres and the main house sits above a picture perfect lake.

The Real Dirt on Family Farms

It had not yet begun to rain when we left the dog at the vet and Jonas started into town to return the trailer.

I have lived in Altadena since 2004 and not too much happens here (which is a good thing, mostly) but over the last six months Altadena has established a certified organic & local Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays 3pm-7pm  and a […]

Farmers, Community and Trust

“We’re planning on traveling the USA visiting organic farms and ecovillages this year.” “You’re what?” That’s pretty much how most of my conversations start of late. Eventually they get around to asking: “How did you find these farms?” “WWOOF.” “What?” “Not What, WWOOF.” “What?” I enjoy the moment while the exchange reminds me of an Abbott […]

Start Where You Are!

I recognize there are a whole mess of people out there that are up for the idea of living a sustainable lifestyle but they have no idea where to start. And,  understandably, they simply cannot hit the road to do the research and get some hands-on experience in the principles of permaculture, organic farming and […]
