Happy Equinox! Perhaps you are out planting your spring lettuces and herbs? I hear some of you are planting fruit trees too!
A couple of updates:
If you have extra fruit on your trees that you would consider donating to @brownbaglady, a nonprofit that distributes food to the homeless community on skid row every Sunday, Alison and her kids will come help harvest or just pick up!

Finally, my daughter Lauren sent me the below, which is dear to my heart as it is about Regenerative Agriculture. If you are new to regenerative farming practices and how they can be integral in healing our planet, please read the attached article. You might also be interested in their Speaker Series. Lauren has been working with the Rainforest Alliance for the past 1 1/2 years and we are so impressed with this non-profit’s global ecological/ environmental work on all levels. They really take the bull by the horns by not only planting trees, but also dive deep into the social, cultural and economic aspects, educating on regenerative farming practices.
Begin forwarded message: From: Lauren Louks <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Invitation | Regenerative Agriculture: Indigenous Roots & Transformative Futures Date: March 18, 2021 at 8:55:31 AM PDT To: undisclosed-recipients:; Dear Friends & Family, I hope all is well! I’d like to invite you to the Rainforest Alliance’s upcoming speaker series event—Regenerative Agriculture: Indigenous Roots & Transformative Futures, a conversation with chef Dan Barber and coffee agroforestry leader Eko Purnomowidi on Thursday, April 1st at 6PM EST. I hope you can join! To register, please follow this link. The conversation will take a deep dive into the importance of applying and adapting traditional ecological agricultural knowledge on both a local and global stage. Coincidently, an opinion piece by Juliana Jaramillo, our Global Lead on Sustainable Agriculture, was recently published by the Thomson Reuters Foundation: Greener agriculture is a win for farmers, food companies and the environment. I thought you might enjoy reading it as well! It seems Regenerative Agriculture is quickly moving to the forefront of the sustainability conversation. Please feel free to share with anyone else who may be interested! All my best, Lauren -- Lauren Louks email@example.com 424 235 9546 she/her
