Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Sustainability and organic starts from the ground up, from our choices.

 

Organic Living


by Ron Schmid

The work of some people seems to me to utilize principles embodied in traditional cultures to help modern people heal. Carl Jung, the great Swiss psychiatrist and scholar and one of the most profound thinkers of modern times, was one such person. Jung described the work of psychotherapy as “the healing of souls.” Like Weston Price, Jung was born in the 1870s and spent his life seeking to understand fundamental forces that shape the lives of people everywhere to determine health and wellness.

Soil is vital to the health of both people and the planet. Unfortunately, it is often the most overlooked of all agricultural inputs. The U.N. General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS) to increase awareness and understanding of the many important roles of soil...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The soil; it's all about the soil. Where we plant our seeds determines how we live. It is a rule that runs literally and metaphorically in our crops, our lives, and our intentions. Without a solid foundation, what can grow? Well?

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz:  Microbeads, tiny plastic beads, lurk in many health and beauty products. From toothpaste to body scrubs, these additives are making their way to destroying our rivers, oceans, and planet.

 

Organic Living


by Carol Dreibelbis

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that about one-third—or 1.3 billion metric tons—of all food produced for human consumption goes to waste each year. While it is easy to recognize the enormity of this number, it is much more difficult to make sense of it in a useful way.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: We waste way too much. Why is this happening? How does it impact us? An interesting article to investigate.
