Happy Earth Day, Sustainable Growers!

From my heart,
I want to take a moment
to thank you,
each and every one,
for all that you do,
in a million small and large ways,
for our true mother, the Earth.

…your respect for soil food webs,
…your love of trees and plant kingdom
…your willingness to investigate
the links among soil, nutrition, food, and health.

Blessed are those who play in the dirt!
Blessed be those who recycle to their compost pile!
Yay and Tra La!

How to continue to do things that are Earth and nature-friendly? I say,

May we all take more joyful steps
toward partnering—
instead of fighting—
Mother Nature.
All we need to do is ask.
Our cooperative allies are standing by.
They await our handshake
and our questions.

That is why I wrote my story in Ask Mother Nature. May it help boost our consciousness and joy, regardless of our troubled times.

Praise and thanks to you, fellow gardeners,
Ellen Vande Visse
