“In this earth, in this soil, in this pure field let’s not plant any seed other than seeds of compassion and love.” ~ Rumi
Disheartening isn’t it that the number of family farms has drastically been diminished since our country was founded. If you’ve ever driven across the country or glanced out an airplane window, there is so much open land in these United States of America. Where I live, and in other agriculturally rich regions, there is a growing movement toward developing agribusiness, which is healthy in many respects and bringing young, talented people with fresh ideas into the fold will make it sustainable.
Char-Hope Foundation is helping to support “growing life skills using agriculture” as well as providing a nourishing environment for people of all ages. Read more about this wonderful organization in Pylesville, Maryland which was recently the recipient of a gift which will give it’s foundation a boost.
Having good neighbors with heart, health and wellness at the center of business is always a good thing!
You, too, can be at the heart of your community by contributing your talents. We can all help whether it is in big or small ways. They all matter.
Do return soon to Sow the Heart.
