Lately I’ve been all over the place both physically and mentally.  I was fortunate to be able to spend some time at our local Focus the Nation event.  It was small but for me it was a well needed ray of hope.  I’ve been feeling rather isolated and hopeless about finding other like-minded people in my area.  It just seemed to me that no one really cared about the environment or even their own health.

Several things occured around the time of the Focus the Nation event. I went searching for a local foods coop that I knew existed “underground” here in my area.  The food is ordered from a place nearly 2 hours away and delivered to a home here in my area.  This is all done rather casually, so it was difficult for me to identify the person receiving the deliveries.  After finally remembering the name of the food supplier, I called and asked for the name of the local contact person.  This contact turned out to be a wonderful, like-minded woman who was a wealth of information and really just a nice person. 

So in a short time, I picked up my first delivery of organic food (25 pounds of organic oatmeal makes a lot of granola!).  And at the time of the pick-up, I was able to talk to my new friend and learn about all the things she is involved with locally.  She’s come to the conclusion that a web page for local green information would be helpful to people searching for things in our area.  I couldn’t agree more.

Secondly,at the Focus the Nation event, I was able to identify some area people who had businesses selling organic/green products and organizations interested in environmentaly stewardship.  And, I was able to see and talk to people who were trying to make some individual differences in controlling the causes of climate change. 

How does this change anything?  I can’t explain it, but knowing that you aren’t the only one who sees what is going on does make a difference.  I’ve stepped up my work on some local projects.  Personally I continue making changes in what I buy and the way I live.  I urge you all to begin to connect locally to organizations that promote green and organic causes.  You’ll may have to really look hard to find someone like you.  But don’t give up, they’re out there.

  1. Oooooo, I would love to be able to find a local foods coop like you found! About the closest thing we have is our local produce stand. While they do sell things like hybrid corn, they do not sell GMO. They also could not tell me if they used pesticides on the strawberries they had avail. (don’t know if they grew them or they got them somewhere else- but anything that is not allowed to be sprayed within so many feet of a school can not be good for you, she thought facetiously…….so I went without strawberries again….I am going to have to plant my own again, one of these days!)
    I know exactly what you mean about being with like minded people! Sounds like a great time at the FTN event!

  3. I almost never leave comments, but i did
    a few searching and wound up here Organiblog –
    Lets Talk Organic! | Organic Living Ideas and Discussions | Green Eco Friendly Products | I’m Organic for Earth Friendly Gifts.
    And I do have a few questions for you if you
    tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look like some of these responses come
    across as if they are coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have
    to post. Could you list of every one of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or
    linkedin profile?

  10. I know this web site presents quality dependent content
    and extra data, is there any other site which gives these kinds of
    stuff in quality?

  11. Of course the requirements are going to be dependent on the size of your business, however choosing a Vo –
    IP reverse phone lookup could indeed
    cost your businesses next to nothing or it could in fact leave your
    business with unparalleled up front costs. The price of the
    next i – Phone could well increase by almost $100.
    Sending a book and follow-up information sheet
    are two things that will help you on a high-level basis.
