The Responsibility of Living Organic~

Those of us who have learned to think and act "organic" now has the responsibility of making sure our knowledge is used to impact others who are still searching for the understanding.

We must display our actions in all phases of our life to effect the production of goods, food, and power. This obviously has to be more than digging compost into our gardens. Our actions must start in our own gardens, but it can't stop there if we are going to make real change a success.

There are three ways to impact the cause.

One-is Personal. Return all we can to the soil instead of the landfill.
Grow some of our own food, and grow it without chemicals.
Take action to know and preserve our own health.
Our health care system is shakey at best. We must begin to take charge and be the keeper of our own well being.

Two-is Community Action. Whatever our knowledge is, we must share it with those around us. Be a teacher, a promoter, a leader. There are many things that can be accomplished by a group that one person can't do.
A community project for recycling, edible gardens at schools, senior centers, and homeless shelters are great places to start.

Three-Political Action. It's a fact that environmental problems have largely been created by misguided use of technology. Solutions will have to be for the most part political as well.
We must get very aquainted with our politicians, locally and nationwide.
Ask hard questions and don't settle for brush-off answers.

A good question to ask is: What are you doing to make our planet a more organic place? Be bold about what we are doing and what we need to help our cause.

Organic has made great strides in the last few years, but we have only scratched the surface to what has to be done.

Please join me in doing something that will make a real difference in the bigger picture.
