Natural health activists are finding and sharing innovative ways to deal with today's unexpectedly challenging times. Building upon holistically inspired formulas for sustainable living, the movement is accelerating progress in that direction. Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay shares news and views from the forefront of the natural health movement each and every month. So, read on, pass it on, and reinforce holistic pathways of thought and self-empowerment by any means possible.
On the 14th of this month, daylight savings time returns to our cozy little place on the planet—time to reset body clocks one and all. On the 17th, people celebrate Irish culture with special St. Patrick's Day events and the wearing of the green which is said to make us invisible to any fairy tale leprechauns that might be lurking about.
I am excited by this issue's focus on vital ways food and nutrition affect positive growth in health and wellness of life on planet Earth. In "Down to Earth: ThePromise of Regenerative Organic Farming," writer Sandra Yeyati tells of innovative approaches to food growth practices and distribution networks that are effecting positive changes at home and abroad. We are also reminded of ways sustainable food growth is doable at home and in community, opening our minds to the possibilities.
In this month's Conscious Eating department, we are reminded and encouraged to create our own kitchen gardens. In "Indoor Edible Gardens," writer April Thompson shares empowering and tempting insight on ways to grow our own veggies, sprouts and microgreens throughout the year. All those wonderful vitamins and minerals just waiting to be born and to nurture you—at your command. What a wonderful path to pursue.
I hope you enjoy reading on,
