some news from Organikal
Hey there<<First Name>>,


A Scottish Summer

We're not on our usual European house-swapping summer adventure this year. We're staying here in the UK and like most folks, life continues to be super busy here at Organikal Towers.

Since my last update was back in November of 2010, I wanted to fill you in a little on some of the projects and products that we're enjoying - a smorgasboard of bits and pieces you might find useful (or just a bit of fun). Keep reading for a wee something extra added in, with love from me to you.

Natural Health

I've been writing some articles for this new ezine all about organic living and natural health. Do check it out - and don't forget to like their Facebook page for regular updates.

Organic Farming

We're going down to visit the My-Farm Project soon. I'm so excited about this National Trust initiative which allows me to finally live out my dream of being a real farmer! Farmers get the chance to debate and vote on the key decisions around the organic farm - and we're aiming to turn a profit. 

Etsy Love

Last year, I made the pledge to buy handmade as part of our Organikal Manifesto. Visiting Etsy can sometimes be confusing, so here are two of my recommendations: Lori Portka Art and Miss Ballantyne Organic Skincare. Two shops that go above and beyond. If all shopping was like this, I'd be in trouble! 

(Miss Ballantyne is a bit low on stock as she prepares to open her new website, but do make sure you save her to your favourites and we'll cover her new store and products on Organikal when it opens.)

More Projects

I've included details on this page of some of the other projects I'm involved with outwith the Organikal site. Do take a look and join in. These are exciting times - and I'd love it if you joined me.

VegBoxMenu

Foodie Ideas

The challenge = what can this organic enthusiast feed her family for a week from 3 carrots, a kohlrabi, a swede and a couple of oranges? 

The complications: a vegetarian husband and a teenage son who hates veggies. 

When I remember to update VegBoxMenu it documents some of the food we eat. The hope is that you might also find a few ideas in there.

I'm looking for your veg box recipes, too - drop me an email if you've a tasty meal you'd like to include.

Find The Beauty

I took this 6 week photography class in the spring and discovered hidden aspects of myself from the get go.
Darrah Parker leads this class with an almost psychic sense of what you need, when you need it. No complicated equipment required. Next session begins July 11, 2011.
Magical meditations for Kids


Meditating Kids

I love Heather Bestel! Heather has produced this fabulous series of meditations for children aged 4 -12. She's an experienced psychotherapist who has worked with children developing and building their self esteem and confidence since 1994 and these meditations are the bees knees.
