Hello!! Happy what seems like Spring!!! What a wonderful past couple of days :)
A little snow and ice and then today... 70 degrees!
Needless to say I was out in the garden today,
clearing brush, trimming the catnip and nettles back to find the new life emerging beneath the leaves.
The miracles of life and
nature always succeed in amazing me!

WHAT IS COMPOST TEA?
Simply put, Compost Tea is a living solution. It is the act of growing microorganisms, or microbes, in an aerated solution using biological inoculates and food sources. Compost tea contains living beneficial microbes found naturally in healthy soil and compost. When added to a growing situation these microbes replicate and perform dynamic and often immeasurable functions that naturally increase plant health, soil vitality, nutrient absorption, resistance to pests & disease, and help the plants to acquire nutrients that may not be in a plant available form.
Introductory offer $10 a gallon (reusable glass jar), living spring water infused)

Organic and Clean Body Care Products
The Grapeseed Co.
These luxurious body care products are a must have
for those who delight in lotions, toners, serums,
body butters and all things silky and pretty!
Handmade in a sweet little shop in Santa Barbara California,
the girls at the Grapeseed Co. use the left over grapeseeds
from the surrounding wine country of Napa and Sonoma
to create their own very special grapeseed oil.
Grapeseed oil is one of the most powerful topical antioxidants!
Knowing that these products are handmade in small batches
using an in house grapeseed oil
from the freshest seed (that would otherwise go to waste)
makes these delightful body care, or should I say body love
products, even that much more special.
So far my fav is the grapeseed, acai and shea
Rosevine Whipped Body Butter!
I can't wait to try them all!!
The established health benefits of omega-3s are based on decades of data—much of which are based on natural triglyceride omega-3s. Whereas most concentrated fish oils on the market today are in the ethyl ester molecular form—a synthetic fat with only 18 years of history in the human diet—all Nordic Naturals formulas are produced in true triglyceride form to ensure optimal absorption and results. New research shows that the absorption advantage of the triglyceride form is significant—up to 70% more than ethyl esters.

Want to Generate Lost Collagen?
Know the Facts-
The Science of Collagen
with Kara Comp
Monday, May 16th
12:00 noon- 1:00pm
Find out why eating collagen or taking collagen pills derived from animal ingredients may not be as effective as stimulating the body’s own fibroblasts, responsible for generating collagen in human skin; and the body’s own osteoblasts, responsible for generating collagen in human bone.
This seminar is about clearing up the myths and misconceptions about collagen as Ms. Comp gives us researched data, shares insight into that data
and introduces us to Biosil.
Biosil, a dietary supplement, contains ch-OSA.
So, what is ch-OSA?
ch-OSA or choline-stabilized OrthoSilicic Acid as it is known in the medical journals, is BioSil’s clinically proven complex that turns on the fibroblasts in skin and osteoblasts in bone that generate collagen. Research on ch-OSA began over two decades ago by a European Pharmaceutical company headquartered in Belgium. There, a team of molecular biologists began looking for ways to “re-spark” the fibroblasts – safely. After 5 painstaking years, and hundreds of trials, they believed they had identified the specific complex that generates collagen – in humans, ch-OSA. University conducted, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials were immediately performed. When the clinical trial results came in, their hypotheses was confirmed. ch-OSA had been clinically proven to increase collagen formation, increase skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, thicken and strengthen hair, increase bone collagen formation, and increase bone mineral density. You can find the stunning results of the ch-OSA clinical trials in peer-reviewed medical journals. It’s no wonder why BioSil continues to be the #1 Collagen Product in the world, as it actually generates the collagen you need. Excerpt from http://www.biosilusa.com/

Is “elderhood” a golden age of leisure and freedom or is it just a series of trials and tribulations; or maybe it is some of both? Healthy Harvest Natural Foods is presenting a seminar led by Susan Petersen (76) and her husband Tom Mahan (85) who are advocates of the last third of life as the time for blossoming and savoring life. They, like most who are recipients of Social Security and Medicare, have known major stressors which health professionals list as high risk to our health: death of loved ones, divorce, serious physical disease or disability, moving, financial crises and the like. Nonetheless, Tom and Susan propose that there are effective ways to navigate through the rapids and rocks of life with an attitude that proclaims the preciousness of each day.
Susan Petersen, a retired licensed massage therapist with a background in nutrition and Tom Mahan, a retired licensed clinical psychologist and university dean/professor, have put together a program, A Compass for Aging Wisely, with four basic “points” that will provide direction toward satisfying and productive years in what some refer to as the twilight time of life. Based upon their own life and professional experiences along with reading and thought, Petersen and Mahan describe those four basic points as: Taking Control, Letting Go, Building/Re-building Social Bridges, and Befriending Death.
Participants will journey with the presenters through these four responses to the challenges of aging, looking at burdens such as feelings of isolation, of being overwhelmed, of physical and or emotional helplessness, of guilt and/or anger over lost relationships, of depression and despair, of the fear of death. Often such feelings haunt and cripple us. The seminar will suggest specific, concrete, self-initiated interventions to turn such burdens into positive experiences; Susan and Tom will also entertain questions after each of the four “points.”
