The Yard Sale

Not only ‘too much stuff’ but ‘too much stuff that we don’t use’.  ie clutter.

reduce, reuse, recycle, clear out the cupboards and make it so that you can find what you need and use.   it’s therapeutic.

i’ve just wiped off neat little dress-the-
snowman fridge magnets my kids loved when they were younger.  they are still good, but there’s no room on my fridge.

a bargain at 50 cents for the lucky buyer, but priceless to me for the fun we had when we played with them, and the smiles they drew from me when i was prepping for the sale.

i hope other little children enjoy them just as much.

what’s that buzzzzz? all balm and honey at paradise bee farm

during the summer of 2011 thegreenrock.ca green team visited paradise bee farm and met beekeeper aubrey goulding.   very cool guy and kind of a bee-whisperer.  the team says it was fascinating ~ and according to the way mike is looking at the bees, it was all that and more!

the bees do good things and good business, and it ain’t all about the honey.   paradise farms bee natural products help take care of important things like hands and lips and babies.

aubrey is all about the bees, and paradise farms offers workshops that teach others how to keep the bees.   there will be another workshop later in the spring.  call  (709) 782-1435 or email info@beenatural.ca get on the list!

The Organic Farm ~ gentle sustainable good

Mike and Melba Rabinowitz started The Organic Farm back when ‘green’ was a colour and ‘organic’ had little to do with marketing.  it’s a good feeling, and a great first vid of the new year.

in the summer of 2011 thegreenrock.ca Green Team visited The Organic Farm on Churchills Road in Portugal Cove – St. Phillip’s.  Melba R. shared the story with Anna, (Mike R. made a cameo!) .

you might think that mid-winter is scarce on fresh but eureka! – Louis R. is growing the mirco-greens.  they are an excellent source of vitamins in the winter (salads, soups, sandwiches or snacks).  get some, and give yourself, your family, your community and your planet a nutritious hug.  samples, consignments or questions email organicfarm@nl.rogers.com or leave a message for Louis  at 895-2884 (house) or 689-7693 (farm).
