Occupy organic vegetable gardens - Rebirth of the Victory garden
During World Wars I and II, private citizens were encouraged to plant Victory gardens in an effort to support the war effort and take the strain off the food industry, providing more food for citizens living at home. Little gardens popped up all over the country and they were called Victory gardens because people envisioned a victorious end to strife, sadness and hardship. Victory gardens in the U.S. produced a staggering 40% of the food supply. The Victory garden campaign resulted in 5 million gardens tended by over 20 million Americans, providing over $1.2 billion in food by the end of WWII.
One of my goals is to focus on the solution not the problem to help myself and others create a new earth, the world we've all been dreaming of. I stumble every day, making mistakes and sometimes losing my way; however, I do my best to pull myself back and remind myself to focus on the outcomes I desire, and not the fear, sadness and grief that causes the problems. The realities we create come from paying attention to what we want, not what we don't want. This is what my work is about.
My main interests are in alternative and natural healthcare, wellness and green living. I practiced alternative medicine, classical homeopathy and holistic nutrition for over 30 years and am now retired. I'm currently a freelance writer and enjoy sharing what I know with others to help empower you to take care of yourself instead of falling prey to the system. I hope you enjoy my articles. I apologize in advance, but I cannot offer medical adviceor treat anyone online. It's a pleasure being here.
