Are You an Environmentalist? ~ Veggie List 11/22/14 ~ Happy Thanksgiving

Hear No the Turkey

This is a picture of Hear No. He’s the oldest, the smartest and the most handsome tom on the farm.  Behind him is his son Little Tom.  They all wish you as does everyone from the farm a Happy Thanksgiving.

I don’t know one person who doesn’t drink water.  If you care about drinking clean water, you are an environmentalist.  If you are concerned about eating clean food, you are an environmentalist.  If you are concerned about inhaling clean air, you are an environmentalist.

Our earth needs more people to care for her.  Be loyal to her. Be respectful and use spacial awareness where ever you go for her.  Think like the earth….do you want oil, cigarette butts and gum!!!!!!!!!!!!……all smudged in your face? Instead of green forests and hillsides glowing in autumn colors, everything could be brown, dead looking, chipping bark falling from tree trunks, no more grass, just, contaminated soil.  I don’t want that for anyone, including me.  I want clean food, clean water, clean air and clean soil.

Hear No the Turkey and his entourage on Tonopah Rob's farm

Big Red and the gang gobble-gobble you a Happy Thanksgiving too. They all invite you to come to the farm and take pictures of their handsome swagger.

Mother Earth’s water resources have been contaminated.  I am very fortunate to have fresh well water for my house and farm, everyone should have clean water. I think our states should close more streams, lakes and rivers to the public, not forever……but for a length of time to let the earth rejuvenate.  Crop rotate acres of parks to remain closed.  Let the aquifers and hillsides cleanse themselves from humans.

Trash is everywhere.  If people stop using the earth for their habits and put things where they should be, then more people wouldn’t have to bend over and pick up the garbage therefore we can have cleaner soils.

Be willing to accept change and make change in your life and others around you will begin to “get it”.  Whether Wall Street or Buckeye, Arizona all people must change the way they are treating our earth.  Take for granted those little things….they are the biggest things to be concerned about.

Seek local pesticide/bt/soaps/chemical/free farms.  Seek GMO free farms. If one is still having health issues and are eating organic, go better than that. Support Nature Grown farming.  My farm is all natural and Nature Grown.  Nothing ever gets in the way of the plant, soil and water. Everything on my farm is grown without the use of any type of unnatural anything…..if a person supports organic farmers then go better than organic. Eat organic when you must, it’s not the worst thing in life.  People must change the way they purchase. Stop supporting farms and produce grown with chemicals.

People can change commerce.  The airline company that had several  tragic events, for weeks the planes flew empty and the spinach industry scare in the United States a few years ago did my farm a world of good.  People stopped buying box store spinach and came to the farm. Sales increased and the farm produces more spinach now than the last three years combined.  What does it take to get people to change? Does it take a fatal illness from a family member? Or dear friend’s struggle to stay alive from a cheap box of strawberries tainted from chemicals sprayed on them before harvest?

Every person and every family can change the way they eat and shop.  Low income to the wealthy can do their part to help create a better world. If you can’t afford to buy everything nature grown or organic at least purchase the most popular item used in your household nature grown or organic, it truly sends a message to the number crunchers.

If we as a people change the way we shop then more chemical companies, smoke stacks, large-scale farms and the multitude of other businesses will be forced to better themselves as a company.  Support your local farmer.  Challenge yourself!  I know everyone can change, I did.
