No Trash At All?

The videos seem to be taking over, but here’s another one that’s too good to miss. I just  shared it on my facebook page, then decided that it had to reach a wider audience. This one is about a town in Japan with the goal of producing no trash at all. The residents sort their trash into 36 different categories and claim to have become used to doing it! Imagine the improvements that would be made to our environment if this became the norm? Just some more food for thought on this late fall/early fall/springish kind of day!

Enjoy!   Michele

Homesteading in LA: A Food Tank Video

This video about Jules Derves and his family homestead is truly inspiring… imagine growing most of your own food on 1/5 of an acre in Los Angeles!  They’re blessed with a year round growing season and appear to be great food preservers, along with sharing and selling their produce locally. We’re working on extending our season, which I believe has more possibility than we might think, especially when the weather is unseasonably warm. I should have planted another crop of lettuce  six or eight weeks ago! Anyway,  I hope that you enjoy this video and are as inspired as I was.  Michele
