Fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion. Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. The solution is to purchase local, organic food from farmers that value their soil. Know your farmer, know your food! #Fact #Food #Farmers #LocalFood #FarmersMarkets by rfirst

The Faery Healing Symbol ~ The Elves tell us that the symbol in the center is an ancient symbol for healing. One of the ways it can be used is simply by placing it in a room with someone who is ill and it will help draw the energy of healing. There are other more direct methods to use this symbol and we will go over that in a later post. (Note: Of course, we can not guarantee any healing results and encourage you to seek treatment from a qualified medical professional.) by icinl

"Market Grown is a campaign to support local farmers in Alachua County, FL. In order to help the farmers, we made burlap bags to be sold at the Farmers Market to create revenue. The bags feature screen printed designs of vegetables and fruits which are sold by the farmers. The bags are made out of burlap as a way to up-cycle existing materials found at the market. The inside of the bags are lined with colorful nylon fabric so they are water-proof for fresh produce. " by concepcion

How to Build an Inexpensive Hoop-Style Greenhouse One of the most valuable assets in my garden is my greenhouse. It has allowed me to grow plants that I normally would not be able to grow, produce crops that the season is not usually long enough to produce, and protect my plants from frosts, hail, or other severe weather that normally would have destroyed my garden. by marjorie

1 Corinthians 13:4-8. These verses tell us about the amazing qualities of what real, perfect love is like. And it is not simply romantic love, as many who isolate these words from the context of the Scripture may interpret these words to mean. This is true, unconditional, perfect love! God's perfect love is the model for kind of love that God intended us to have for Him. He loves us so much! by lilbitty
