Happy Earth Day!

Celebrate the planet by taking steps to make it a healthier place to live. Walk or bike to work or to the store, buy local and organic, non-GMO products, use re-useable shopping bags, use earth and human-friendly products like Seventh Generation, and most of all, get outside and enjoy the gorgeous spring weather! It's not about absolutes - nobody can do all of it, all the time - but it is about doing everything you can realistically to make steps toward a healthier planet and body.
In honor of the day, here's a great article showing how environmental education is succeeding in some places.

Spring Has Sprung!

Its beginning to feel a lot like spring around here. The robins are out in abundance, eastern phoebes are calling out raspy, "phee-bee, phee-bee!" from the tree tops, and the dawn chorus greets me each morning as I wake. We had some gorgeous weather this past weekend, but it's supposed to rain this week.
Hopefully it will clear up soon, and I can get out for a hike, or maybe even an overnight trip??
A cautionary tale though, friends warned me not to put my winter gear away yet, mother nature has been known to surprise Vermont with an April snowstorm in the past. Wouldn't that be fun?
