Roz Dells tossed a foreclosure notice in the trash. Ridiculous! She had made her payments and could not be bothered by spam. The library’s Seed Exchange Program was about to launch, and she was in charge.

But when she receives another letter demanding that she shut down the Seed Exchange Program, she wonders – is this spam or something more sinister? Dance Upon a Field is a story about friendships and the power of community to band together.

When a recently widowed horticulturist decides to return to the peaceful small town where she met and married her husband, she hopes to quietly raise her son.

But when she attempts to install a community garden near the local library, she soon discovers that digging in the garden can reveal more than dirt.

Life with Nature

image

I’m not a political person. However, I do believe in sharing best practices and good news when I get the chance. So after reading an Audubon Society how-to article about reducing carbon foot prints, I thought I’d share a few of my own good practices.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs most of you know I grew up in Minnesota where you must learn to live without electricity during those days and weeks when the Alberta clippers blast bone-chilling freezes across the Midwest and dump twenty-feet of snow. It’s an excellent learning experience in conservation.

I’ll begin by sharing the secret to fifty-dollar electric bills. Live in an energy-efficient, wind-resistant geodesic dome. Or install solar.

imageMow what grows in your yard -no grass monocropping – and leave the watering to nature. You won’t need fertilizer or pesticides, and the birds, squirrels and critters will create their own sanctuary outside your home.

Last, think differently.

– Waste nothing, save for a rainy day.
– Stock up, invest for days when you have nothing. Even squirrels do it.
– Use dual fuels, give nature a chance to regenerate.
– Don’t rely on someone to provide for you. Be a giver instead, and you’ll be rewarded with a comfortable and happy life even through the hardest of times.

Enjoy life with nature in your days ahead!
