Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, and was first held on April 22, 1970.

Now Earth Day has the Earth Day Network and over 175 countries partake in one week of activites, awareness, and appreciation of the Earth.

Watch for BellaOnline's Green Team!

To all the Bakers,cooks,chefs,wine enthusiasts, homemakers and foodies alike let's start a green forum! In honor of Earth day and being passionate about our Earth, let's put our heads together and bounce ideas and activities off each other about ways we can be more responsible and aware of our environment for now and years to come!

What can we do? How can we alter our lifestyles? ect.

I'll start:

Cleaning our kitchens with products that don't harm our environment.

Eat the freshest and eat local! This helps you, the environment, and helps to start sustainability in your area. I dug up a web site for your local area.

In many parts of the country while the spring weather is not too warm seeds are started indoors and moved into the ground later. Here are some very cool web-sites to check into!

Great for kids too!
Go to:
www(dot)localharvest(dot)org
plug in you zip and you can view local seeds,vendors, farmers markets,and all within your local area.

More to come!
From your garden to your kitchen.

From your garden to your kitchen!

Ever heard of Seeds of Change?

It was started in 1989 to promote things like sustainable organic agriculture.

One can find them at .seedsofchange(dot)com

I have no affiliations with any of the organizations posted here or in previous or future posts. Just pure sharing of information. Enjoying Mother Earth.

Here are a few little thing green things you can do in your kitchen:

Did you know that you save more energy if you load your dishes facing the same way?

It saves energy to run a dish washer full and not 1/2 empty.

Try to put out a hand towel for wiping hands as opposed to using so many paper towels.

Try to use containers already in your cabinet to pack lunches as opposed to using plastic baggies.

More to come. If you have kitchen ideas or food type "green" ideas let us know and share!

Hey Foodies! What is new in your green world?

Has anyone started a garden? From mother earth to your table is the greenest we can get right?

who makes their own wine or crafts beer? Does anyone know any other Greenies out there?

I am hoping the Food Channel can be the leaders in the lessoning of our footprints?

Will you support your local farmer's market?

Will you be selling your garden at a market?

Will you grow your own tea garden?

Becoming green may even save you money.

Drinking filtered water out of your faucett rather than buying water-also saves in landfills because you are using a reuseable drink bottle.

Ride your bike to work/school on days that are nice ride your bike brings you health advantages/saves your fuel/helps to keep the air clean!

Growing your own produce-freshest from your garden to your table! Water from your water barrel!

Can you help make changes?

Thanks,

What have you made either to eat or in your home that required only "green" things

Such as Salsa from my garden, or refurrbished a chair for my house for examples.

Dear lovers of this earth,

Tell us on this first day (officially) of Autumn what will you be doing in your garden? Will you move plants inside? Do you have a greenhouse? And are you making a difference in your own home?

I have been moving the house plants indoors, which means much pruning, repotting and cleaning them up; meanwhile rearranging things inside to accomodate them again. Sadly I must let the big old (35+years)Oleander go. It has a bad case of scale insects and they have resisted everything I have tried all summer long to get rid of them. However, I have a clean 3 year old clone of the Oleander that is about 3 1/2 ft. tall, beginning to branch and bloom so it will still be with me. There are still about 5-6 plants to bring in, including the biggest one, a 45 year old tangerine tree that brushes the ceiling. The first frost is still a few days away, but I dare not waste any more time.

Dear readers of tea and green kitchen lovers,

What if any green thing are you doing for Thanksgiving? Do you do an eco-friendly farm? Did you raise your own? What other "green" ideas for the holidays do you have?

Cosmetics go green too! Mark (Avon Cosmetics) are the hipper & trendier part of the Avon company and they are selling bath soaps with white tea extract in them and these products are certified Fair-Trade. They are called Clean Up Time bar soap.

While I have no affiliation with this company & am not receiving compensation for this mention, I mentioned it because the cosmetics companies arelistening and now responding to "green" offerings.

I do have my own tea garden. I grow two flavors of mint, a lemon balm, a lemon thyme and some white sage. I would love to grow chamomile too.

Hey There! Jilly! It is very cool having your own tea garden growing! Good for you~I have a green thumb but my kitchen area has no location for window light am currently looking into the "domed-type" lit garden. I'll keep you posted how that'ws going!

Let us know from time to time how your garden turns out & at this point heard that chamomile is very hard to grow & hard to get?? (also tempremental)

Did you know that you can start your seeds indoor in tiny "peat" cups and then when it is time to plant into containers or into the garden one can put the entire peat cup into the ground? They are totally biodegradable and one is encouraged to purchase them!

Refuse to buy in plastic containers!

Who is planning their garden around their salads?

Who just purchased a rain barrel?

Who will recycle old things into fashion garden art?

Will you do any of these things this coming Spring & summer?

Dear Green lovers and garden gals & guys-

No local farmers market in your area? Start a neighborhood garden swap in someone's garage~

Send e-mails to neighbors and give extra fruits & vegs. to each other! Start seeds & exchange seeds with each other! Exchange ideas and seeds, create a community garden~

Sounds fun & envoke a community spirit, pride in the neighborhood and even may feed someone who is a little less fortunate! Please Please Let us all know if you do this & how it turns out!

I hope that you planted a tree for Arbor Day & are now onto your garden.

Have you geared your garden toward your salad plate? Is your garden especially for salsa? Is you garden used to make your favorite tea?

Be green by planting flowers and have a habitat for animals & insects.

To all Green beings:

I try to plant for the habitat as well~

I love to bring birds, bees and other insects to my flower garden~it heps your garden grow as well as providing habitat that otherwise was not there perhaps~

P.S. Lady bugs found in your garden are a good sign that your garden is healthy and happy and from this you shall eat!

Dear "greenies",

This summer sure has been harsh on crops, gardens , and grass what Ideas have you for watering in this drought?

Have you saved water in your rain-barrel? are you rationing the water? What alternative methods have you found?

Thinking of the winter ahead:

How do you prepare for the cold using "green technology", what type ofheat do you use, and does anyone have solar anything???

Who has a winter hot house that grows plants year round?

Keep thinking green~small things make big differences!

Who is going to "can" veggies from your garden harvest?

Who is saving seeds from their flowers, gardens, and herbs?

Who is making small little changes to go green this year??

Loc: Texas
We did not have anything from our garden to can this year thanks to the severe drought (live in Texas). However, we have saved seeds and will use them next year.

The drought has made us use our freezer much more this year. Buying quality fruits and veggies and freezing them for future use.
