I’m beyond excited by this month’s focus on Sustainable Communities. One of my 2015 goals is to up the ante around this theme to support Natural Awakenings’ coast-to-coast goal of forwarding healthy living on a healthy planet, starting in our almost 100 markets.
Working with this Transformative Education issue has me considering some thought-provoking ideas, such as how this time of the year brings on commencement of the traditional school year for most educational institutions, making it kind of a second “new year”.
It has been an amazing and bountiful year for the North Texas local, natural and organic foods movement. People from diverse backgrounds and belief systems all seem to agree on one issue: Eating naturally grown, fresh, local food is good for our health, environment and local economy.
This month, we celebrate Father’s Day and all the good men in our lives, from brothers, uncles, grandfathers, sons, mentors and special bosses to the invaluable, selfless, men that have “stood tall in the gap” fathering us along the way.
