Good Gardening, Organic Visionary?

Well, to my surprise, today I find myself on the cover of a new Australian national gardening magazine.

 See, there I am right down the bottom left hand corner.  Check out page 84 if you purchase it.

Due to copyright, I cannot reproduce the article here on the blog, but I believe that the article is well written and factual and both Kim and I took all the photos.  If you want to read it you will just have to go out and buy it!  It hit newsagents across Australia yesterday.

Yours in greening,

Gavin aka Organic Visionary????

P.S. I was not paid for this article nor expected to be.  Payment goes against my values.

Do Not Drop It

I was doing a bit of surfing and came across this site called “Planet Pals”, which has something to do with Earth Day.  Anyway, I stumbled across the ‘kids count for Earth Day‘ page where a whole bunch of kids from all over the world wrote haiku about Earth day.   A great competition and one that got their creative juices flowing.

There were lots of great entries, but one poem just stuck leapt out at the page at me and a tear formed in my eye.  I thought to myself, “This kid gets it, she really gets what it is all about”.  So, here is her poem.

If you could hold Earth,
Like a bird’s delicate egg,
You would not drop it

Bella Griscom

I will let you reflect on these words.  They are strong. 

Do not drop it.
