It's Easy to Earn Money
by by Bob Proctor
There is a very real possibility that everything you and I have been taught about how to earn money is so far from the truth that it’s almost comical. Earning money has nothing to do with age, formal education, gender or geography. It has nothing to do with past experience or your formal years of education or your level of intellect.

Signs scattered throughout the store, like the one in front of some potatoes and onions, read: "Be Loyal. Buy Local." It's no secret that the demand...

Thinking Globally, Eating Locally
What does that mean exactly? What does it have to do with oil?
Eating locally means choosing food that is grown or raised near
where you live. Because it’s grown locally, less oil is used to
transport it to you. Often local food growers use little or no
commercial fertilizers and pesticides—both made from fossil

The Idea of a Local Economy
by by Wendell Berry
'The idea of a local economy rests upon only two principles: neighborhood and subsistence..."

Scary stuff, why wait until it’s your family? Or your friend or your neighbor?

How to Build a vibrant community

Today began as usual with coffee, while the coffee water boils I rinse my sprouts. This is my morning routine. I love sprouting. These last twelve months I have enjoyed more and more raw food in my diet. I don’t really want to be all raw or all vegan for that matter. I just sincerely enjoy eating fresh green leafy veggies. I don’t eat this way because I’m afraid of losing my health or beauty, I eat this way because leafy greens taste sooo good.
When I grow my own sprouts I feel the energy, ...
