    Happy Earth Day Everyone! It's the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. While the current health crisis is on all of our minds, I just wanted to say that one upside of this pandemic is that our collective carbon footprint is smaller by sheltering in place. Be well and celebrate our Earth. Thank you for caring!

    Attended a veggie cooking class this afternoon with fresh veggies from Lusher Farms, an LO CSA that uses organic and regenerative agriculture procedures when farming.  Delicious eating!  Had a little rain and hail on my daily walk-lovely winter weather!

    Yesterday evening I attended one of the most optimistic presentations relating to climate change presented by Liz Yurkov of Sunshine PDX about Green New Deal Oregon.  This volunteer organization hopes to make significant changes to the reliance on fossil fuels by 2022.

    I talked to folks at PGE, NW Natural Gas and Energy Trust of Oregon;  none of these companies/agencies do energy audits any longer.  But they all gave me suggestions on changes I could make to weatherize my home and make my energy usage more efficient.  I visited the tabs they recommended on their websites and learned useful information as well.  I think the first thing I’ll do is insulate the floors on my first stormy:  access from the crawl space is easy.  Having trouble again with this post-can’t navigate in the box to proofread.

    I wish our posts were a little more user friendly; ie, allowing us to proofread the entire thought before we need to hit send!  However, this one seems to give more flexibility so maybe the process has changed?!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Being more mindful of the expiration dates on food and focusing more on eating fresh food that will expire faster, and eating healthier portions.

    I visited The Springs at Lake Oswego and Emilee Lathouwers took me on a tour of their 5th floor roof garden.  Trees and bushes are flourishing and residents will plant in 6 lovely raised beds when the weather warms sufficiently.  I also visited their herb garden on the 2nd floor where residents grow herbs for this cooking enjoyment.  Fun visit to an eco friendly  facility
