This is not a sponsored post. I’m just genuinely excited about the articles that Fast Company, a magazine & digital media company, has put together on Climate Change. Free! One post in particular really resonated with me to the point where I joked to myself; “Well, I can shut down my blog because someone has written the perfect article about what we can do and how we can do it!”
That would be letting myself off too easily though, wouldn’t it? Many of us need avenues to meet as individuals that help us feel connected and engaged with other people. So I’ll be here, spooling out the best ideas I can find on Nature and Community related subjects.
If you have time, I encourage you to read these articles.
First, I want to acknowledge today, October 11,2021, here in the United States as the holiday of Indigenous Peoples’ Day! This holiday falls on the second Monday in October and is a counter-celebration to what has previously been known as Columbus day. I believe this holiday is important to the modern United States for recognizing and reflecting upon the racism, forced assimilation and genocide of the Native peoples. Environmental Justice is Social Justice for all people!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the first Nature-Led poll!

*I missed an important word, I meant “3D-printed houses, The Future of Housing?” Most of you probably knew what I meant though as we’re already live in the 3rd-dimension. Stay tuned for 4th-dimensional living tips though! Maybe I’ll cover that next year! Haha
What we can still learn from our early native true Americans?
(Short Answer: A LOT! Hahaha. I will discuss this question with an Indigenous friend. Maybe she will do her own guest post or give me her blessing on what I can pull together. As a White woman I can’t speak for Indigenous Americans, but I can share their words and work with you. There is an immeasurable amount of loss and heartbreak in trying to recover their lost languages and ways. Some of these have died with the elders and can never be recovered. Many tribes are currently fighting for a more just and sustainable future though. I would be happy to share their their ‘works in progress.’ I’m hoping this will be there time to shine, that their voices will be heard and that they can help guide us into a more sustainable future.)
What one person can do to actually make a difference.
When I figure this out I’ll let you know! This is my current obsession and why I was a little disappointed about the Regeneration book by Paul Hawken that I reviewed two weeks ago. I wish it had included more pages dedicated to this very topic.
