Going off the grid doesn't have to be a BIG step. In fact, every little step counts. Whether you made your own laundry soap, shopped local produce, recycled plastic, or used recycled shopping bags, you took a little back. You took back a little control of your life, your home, your country, your planet. Isn't that beautiful?
So, for our inaugural blog, I'd like to know what small steps you're taking in your lives, homes, offices, and dreams to take control? How are you giving Mother Earth a little break or honoring God by being thoughtful to His creations? Can't wait to see the comments!
My goals? My goal for March 2012 is to 1) get our non recyclable trash down to a Walmart bag per week through upcycle, recycle, burning, and recycling and 2) to work on our garden, prepping it for the planting which is very near future! Today, in fact, I'm finishing up soil amendment via mulching and spreading the last round of chicken poop.
Did you know chicken poop is touted a THE best fertilizer ever? Lucky us, as I have TONS. Lots of natural much too. Let me know if you need either!
Thanks for stopping by! I am excited about this blog, which will chronicle how the kiddos and I are restoring Maple Valley Farm and honoring God, Mother Earth, and ourselves by keeping it simple. WWJD? I like to ask myself every day in every decision I make. I have a feeling he wouldn't be living on the grid:)
